Default nested sound?

the uni rang and asked if i could do the sound for one of the honours student films. the sound designer dropped out and there is little time. maybe a week?? at the most. anyway this movie is particular good, eight minutes without titles. the problem is the sound is completely nested into a stereo track, despite the OMF.., when i say stereo i mean there would be, no more than 6 effects, thats being generous. effects i mean, bees, ..?? cant think of anything else actually :) (atm). the music is completely separate luckily. some of the dialogue was pretty bad so i created files and cleaned them up, add some room tone here and there, did some things, but the actual mix in places is not too bad but i dont have any control over, well, any of it except to create effects and use better sounds. i guess the question is do i chop up the whole movie and create regions and tracks as i have been but for the whole move (thats what i did at uni when i was at uni last year, but as i say the mix is not too bad in places) so i have some control over the separate elements. is this the normal way to deal with films that are 90% nested.

sorry for the long post, but this is a particularly good movie and i really need help or opinion. it would be really appreciated,

bless the fate that brings good friends together.
