Imagine forgetting your kid in the car, getting into a fist fight with a cop and slapping your smug boss in the face - all before your morning coffee. We all have bad days from time to time. But Valerie is about to put your worst day ever to shame. It all starts with one tiny setback(or a thousand tiny setbacks) at breakfast, when she discovers her adorable son has head lice. When her gay ex husband can't help, she's forced to call her estranged and overbearing mom to babysit so she can make it to a major meeting at the office. And that's when the dam breaks. Finally faced with losing her job and with the custody of her son on the line, Valerie's forced to learn the hard(and hilariously tragic)way that sometimes you have to lose your mind to find your way to a better life.
