When Sammy's big idea for his school project to make a timeline of U.S. history with a map fails, his family stays up all night to help him finish the assignment on time. As Jackie and Barry work on the map, they argue over their different parenting styles. Also, as Javier and Elizabeth help with the timeline, they argue about how to plan financially for their future.
Jackie, a single suburban mother to Sammy, is shocked when her estranged sister, Elizabeth; her sister's outrageously wealthy, big-hearted, Latin husband, Javier; and Javier's fiercely loyal assistant / driver / friend, Luis, land on her doorstep in need of a place to live after Javier's father cuts them off. Though class differences may separate the women, and the size of the house and the number of people living in it will test the limits of hospitality, the bond of extended family might be exactly what they need.
