Art historian Helen Drager's daughter Zoe graduates from The School at the end of the fiscal year. Zoe must gain admission to the proper private high school. Weeding down her list, Helen considers six schools. Her best friend Sara Nash, admissions officer at The School that Zoe currently attends offers sage advice on navigating the shark filled waters; however she is a lightweight because The School matriarch Pamela Rothchild runs everything and parents bow on bended knee to her. With Helen's spouse Michael tied up working graveyard producing TV Cooking Network shows, Helen tries to get her daughter into a good school.
