Two rebellious British teenagers experience strict parenting on the other side of the world, as 18-year-old father-to-be Wesley McGillian and sulky, secretive 16-year-old Tamsin Carruthers-Cole travel to New Jersey, USA. For a week they must live under the strict rules of two dads in the Loperleveille family. Dad Joe is a businessman and his partner Scott is a stay-at-home father, looking after their five boys, three adopted and two fostered. The dads believe that clear rules and honest communication is the key to successfully raising their family. They have prepared a set of rules for the British teens to follow that includes no drinking, no drugs and going to bed early. The teens are also asked to take a drugs test, which causes Tamsin to question her past behaviour and the way she has treated her family. Over the week the teens are strictly supervised. Wes starts work at a local deli and babysits a one-year-old boy. Can the dads teach Wesley to grow up and be a man, while teaching Tamsin to tell her mother the truth?
