Full synopsis: Loner Liam Harris lives a predictable life which he intends to leave behind for his childhood happy place: Canada. At least, until Kal appears. She claims to be his Incorporeal Children's Guide (ICG for short), tasked with helping him recover from being an adult "failure." What Kal doesn't tell him is that she's not too good at being an ICG - she's made a bet with her boss to "fix" Liam in order to keep her job. To make matters worse, Liam's ex-wife suddenly drops off his three kids for the weekend, right before he's due to move. Liam finds himself surrounded by three people (and one imaginary person) who are entirely too loud, entirely too unorganized, and entirely too young. Add in his crush on his nextdoor neighbor, Jordan, and Liam has a mess on his hands. Still suspicious of whether his imaginary friend is a hallucination, Liam begrudgingly teams up with Kal to navigate the stormy waters of his estranged family.
