16-year-old Gigi moves with her mom from California to Minnesota to take care of Grandpa after Grandma's death.  When Gigi meets a group of older ladies at the local library, she devises a (brilliant/evil) plan to get one of them to marry Grandpa so she can go back home.  The biggest challenge isn't in finding a romantic connection for her loveable, goofy (dad-humor) Grandpa; it's in converting Grandpa to Christianity so he's on the same page with the love interests.  Grandpa -- like Gigi -- is an atheist. is a non-profit production company that produces family-friendly entertainment with a message.
