Jennifer Marcus is an agoraphobic, obsessive-compulsive genius who re-engineers obsolete missile components for the U.S. Army from her bedroom. Just your average girl. When she decides to find her birth family in China, she uses her technological genius to devise a new form of human contact. Rolin Jones’ irreverent and touching comedy chronicles one brilliant woman’s quest to determine her heritage and face her fears with the help of a Mormon missionary, a pizza delivery guy and her astounding creation, Jenny Chow.
