Weekend dad Jimmy offers to move back into the marital home to look after his two teenagers when his ex-wife volunteers to tend victims of a natural disaster in Africa.

Unfortunately, Jimmy's patrician mother-in-law, Diana, views him as a walking, talking natural disaster so she virtually moves in to "help", which generally means undermining Jimmy whenever possible!

With a smart-talking daughter, Molly, who thinks she's already a woman, and a son, Alex, who occasionally dresses a bit too much like one, just how much of a challenge can adapting to fatherhood on a daily basis be?
