When Leia arrives in Point Place to visit her grandparents, Red (Kurtwood Smith) and Kitty (Debra Jo Rupp), she meets the dynamic and rebellious Gwen (Ashley Aufderheide). With the help of Gwen’s friends, including her adoring brother Nate (Maxwell Acee Donovan), his smart, laser-focused girlfriend Nikki (Sam Morelos), the sarcastic and insightful Ozzie (Reyn Doi), and the charming Jay (Mace Coronel), Leia realizes adventure, just like it did for her parents all those years ago, could happen there.”
