That is, until she finds herself in prison. Michelle is an investment guru who eventually gets caught for insider trading and ends up in prison. When she is released, she doesn't have many trusting followers left. Her trusty and seemingly pathetic assistant Claire takes Michelle in temporarily. Claire has a small apartment with her young daughter and Michelle brings all of her personality and authority to the apartment and their lives. Claire's daughter, Rachel, is in a Brownie troop. After attending a meeting non-voluntarily, Michelle sees the Brownies as her way back into the investment world. The girls are taken on many silly adventures to make Rachel's Brownie group a success while enemies are made and schemes are drawn up. Meanwhile, Michelle is learning what family and friendship really looks like.
