When 14 year-old Gianna Ricci stumbles upon $2 million in the woods, a sudden escape route emerges for this horny, Catholic school nerd who yearns for independence from her f’ed up family. With wealth (and puberty) finally upon her, she chases the life, the boys, and the acceptance she’s always dreamed of under the guidance of her ex-best-friend (she has boobs now!), Marissa. Little do they know, the #NewMoney really belongs to the Tagliatelle crime family, and two mob goons have been dispatched to collect their keep. By any means possible.
