Sarah can’t catch a break. Right after the nerdy university student is asked out on a date, bullies total her car. When she asks Rachel, her dorky podiatrist mother, to borrow a ride, Rachel won’t loan Sarah her bright red Cadillac. Sarah sneaks out with the Caddy anyway, but the car seems to have a life of its own, leading the young woman to discover her mother’s exciting and secret double life.
