"Maude" follows a day in the life of Teeny, a thirty-something liberal arts creative who is stuck in a spin cycle of survival jobs. When Teeny arrives to a gorgeous home for what she thinks is just another routine babysitting job, she is stunned when Priscilla, her former classmate and friend, answers the door. Once Priscilla, now a Gwyneth Paltrow-esque lifestyle blogger, leaves Teeny to take care of her baby, Celery, Teeny attempts to soothe the inconsolable Celery with a routine spin in the stroller. But after being mistaken for Celery's Mom through a series of interactions with strangers, Teeny decides to harmlessly embrace the lie and try on Priscilla's identity for the day.
