Synopsis >

Acting the part of the sweet little girl has had some major advantages for former Super Sweet 16er Marissa: she's always gotten her every wish from her parents. But two years later, Ditzy dreamer Marissa threw the most over-the-top Sweet 16 Scottsdale, Arizona had ever seen. She took her obsession with the color pink to new levels and got everything she could ever ask for just by asking her daddy, including not one, but two brand news cars! Two years have passed since Marissa's outrageous bash and even though she's about to graduate from high school, this 18 year old is as clueless and helpless as ever! Her parents do absolutely everything for her and she has no idea how to survive on her own. Her mother, KK, admits that she's created a sweet little monster and she’s now afraid that Marissa won't be able to fend for herself in the real world. So KK is taking drastic measures to rectify her mistake: she's exiling Marissa halfway around the world to the Ugali Hills of India hoping she'll finally learn how to stand on her own two feet. In this tribe, working hard is the norm and laziness is not an option. Can Marissa learn the most basic of tasks like cooking and cleaning in order to survive in her new home?
