Most adults wish they could be younger. As for 13-year-old Jenna Rink (Christa B. Allen), she wants to skip junior high and be “30, flirty and thriving.” After being humiliated by a group of popular girls, Jenna’s wish is granted as she magically transforms into a 30-year-old (Jennifer Garner) overnight.
As an adult, Jenna is living in a beautiful apartment in New York City and working as an editor at a fashion magazine. Yet, success came at a price as Jenna forgot about the people who loved her most, primarily her childhood best friend Matty (Mark Ruffalo).
