Duration: 57 minutes

Two rebellious British teenagers experience strict parenting on the other side of the world, as 16-year-old wild child Rosie Hynd and 18-year-old lazy waster Nick Barrientos get new parents in Puerto Rico.

For a week they must live with the Hills, a Christian family who live by the 'if you don't work you don't eat' rule. Dad Ed is a lawyer and his wife Marta is a stay-at-home mum to Ed Junior, daughter Stephanie and son Jeremy.

The Hills believe in firm boundaries and expect the teens to abide by their no smoking and no drinking rule. Immediately the teens defy the parents but Ed compromises, sensing the teens have bigger problems. A second conflict erupts, but this time it ends in a twelve-hour stand-off as Ed and Rosie battle it out to establish who rules the roost.

Can Nick learn to communicate with his mum and start to grow up? And can Ed teach Rosie to curb her reckless ways and learn to respect her parents?
