Daniel, an account manager (Common) is gearing up for Career Day at his daughter's elementary school, while dealing with the fallout of getting fired by his nasty new boss (Bradley Whitford) after an intra-office romance with his married assistant (Jennifer Garner). The boss's nerdy son finds himself instantly entranced with Daniel's daughter (Storm Reid), seeking advice from their school's hip shop teacher (John Cho) and depressed music teacher (Anders Holm) to win her heart. Meanwhile, the teachers' principal team comprising Allison Janney and Rob Riggle spend the day trying to hide the school's dead gardener from not only the staff, but also the students and their parents.
