Scarlett Martin doesn’t exactly come from what you’d call a traditional background– she’s one of four children, living and working in her family’s New York Hotel, an art deco masterpiece that is slowly falling apart around them. Scarlett’s older brother, Spencer, is just trying to get his big break as an actor. Her older sister Lola dates a rich guy named Chip, who is about as interesting as he sounds. Her younger sister Marlene is a cancer survivor, and a sociopath.

The hotel isn’t exactly doing well, so when Mrs. Amberson, an unusual but wealthy guest appears out of nowhere, the Martins greet her with open arms. Mrs. Amberson decides to take Scarlett under her wing, as a kind of personal concierge. And, when her brother’s new co-star catches her eye, Scarlett’s summer is suddenly a lot more interesting than she anticipated.
