Paula Stone is a former Executive whose life is thrown into disarray after she follows her boyfriend and realizes he is married. The public confrontation causes her to lose her well paying job but gain an arrest record, probation and a community service obligation where she is able to secure a meter maid position as a last option to maintain what little self respect she has left, now that her professional reputation has been tarnished. Forced to move in with her neurotic mother due to lack of funds, life seems unbearably hopeless. Her story accelerates when arrogant, but wealthy, Uncle Gordie offers Paula a substantial amount of cash to stalk his mistress, figuring if she was good enough to track down her own ex-lover, she shouldn't have any issues with finding out what his girl has been up to. Days later the same Uncle's wife, Aunt DeDe who is struggling with the reality of turning 50, also hires Paula to follow her husband, certain that he is guilty of an affair. Accompanied by her best and very pregnant friend Mitexi, who unexpectedly gives birth on the floor of the pornographic video store, they tackle the adventures with unconventional success. Ultimately, as Paula begins to realize her talent for following others along with her mother’s encouragement, she uses the earned money to start her own Private Investigative business.
