Determined to find her absentee dad and prove that love can conquer all, Daphne (Amanda Bynes) journeys to London, where she discovers that her father is none other than Lord Henry Dashwood (Colin Firth), an influential aristocratic politician. When Daphne's unique style and effervescent personality create an uproar in high society that threatens to undermine Henry's political career and his budding relationship with Daphne, she immerses herself in a whirlwind of upper crust British social and political events to please her father and fit in with her new family.
