Summary

Gilmore Girls Season 2

Welcome to quaint Stars Hollow, Connecticut. People often mistake the Independence Inn's manager, headstrong single mom Lorelai Gilmore, and her equally willful teenage daughter, Rory, for sisters. Lorelai and Rory cope with the same emotional ups and downs, including Lorelai's overbearing, old-money parents and the joys and frustrations of the male gender.

This heartfelt, humorous drama appeals to young and old alike with its blend of traditional family issues and hip, contemporary attitude. When all is said and done, Lorelai and Rory will remain close, no matter what the future brings. For just as change comes slowly to Stars Hollow, the age-old mother daughter equation endures through it all for the Gilmore Girls.
