Second Act Overview

Maya (Jennifer Lopez) is disappointed at where her life has taken her. She works in a low-paying job at Value Shop, where she's insulted regularly by the boss and passed over for promotions in favor of men. She begins to get bitter, hating people who've done more with their lives and who've had the chance to experience amazing adventures such as climbing Mount Kilimanjaro.

She's astounded when out of the blue, she gets a job interview for a consultant position with private finance firm Franklin & Clarke. The man conducting the interview is impressed with Maya's resumé, which to her surprise says she has a business school degree. There's also a link to her Facebook page, with photos of her climbing Mount Kilimanjaro and posing for photo with the Obamas. It turns out that a friend of hers set up a number of online pages, including a fancy resumé, in order to make her life look more exciting.

She gets the consultant position, which comes with a corner office with gorgeous views of the city, company credit cards and a swanky new apartment. She's good at the job and her life is suddenly amazing, but when she's told that in order to close a new deal, the company has chosen her, because she's the only employee who speaks Mandarin, she has to think quickly in order to not be found out.
