All Barbara wants to do is watch the Simpsons, but her mum has just been overcharged for a chicken at her local store and has to enlist the help of her much more street-wise daughter to sort it out.
The film deals with themes of racism and gaslighting, yet does so in a relatively light way; the issues aren't trivialised, but they're explored in an entertaining way.
