Keywords: Comedy

Feature-length prequel to the television series of the same name centers on a drug-addled ex-convict's quixotic return to high school.

ABSTRACT
Jerri Blank, a forty seven-year old woman gripped by drug problems, a mile-long rap sheet, and general social ineptitude, returns to her hometown following her most recent release from prison in a bid to get her life back on track. Arriving home to a town nearly unrecognizable relative to how it'd looked when she departed at fifteen and determined to make her ailing father proud, Jerri enrolls at her old high school, setting out on a bizarre journey to obtain her diploma at long last.
