The story revolves around two socially awkward teenagers, Gary Wallace and Wyatt Donnelly, who use a computer to create their ideal woman. They bring to life a beautiful and intelligent woman named Lisa. As they navigate the challenges of having a super-powered and unconventional companion, Lisa helps them gain confidence and popularity.
