Summary
Nesi and Mickey are two waitresses at a crossroads. Underpaid and unappreciated, they dream of owning a combination restaurant/hair salon. There's a problem: they're broke. So when the chance to audition as dance girls for a music video pops up, the girls head to L.A. They fail to get the part, but Nesi lands in the most improbable role of all, impersonating the granddaughter of an ailing billionaires long-lost love for $10,000 and full use of his Beverly Hills estate
