When wild child Gene is put under house arrest in her family's mansion, her parents hire buttoned-up nanny Billie to look after her. Trapped in each other's company, the two strike up an unlikely friendship and cause all sorts of trouble. It's an odd-couple story that reaches new depths of depravity.
