Plot Summary

Sammy Smalls is a 21-year-old tomboy who works as a detective at a grocery store.  In between chasing shoplifters, she develops a crush on a musician who thinks she’s bad in bed. Sammy hatches a plan of self-improvement that leads to cross-dressing (sort of), kidnapping, and skinny-dipping with the elderly.
