Synopsis

Moody... demanding... sometimes infantile... sometimes wise beyond her years... that's 13-year-old Constance. How's her uptight, single-parent dad gonna cope? Constance has only known her father, Hank, an award-winning journalist, from a distance, but when her mom gets remarried and goes off on her honeymoon, Constance proceeds to move in and turn Hank's life upside down. It takes his daughter's candid criticism to make Hank face up to himself. And, when he finally takes stock of his life, Hank realizes it's time to reevaluate where he's going.
