After six years of excuses for why she can’t get home for Christmas, the excuses run out and Griselda has no choice but to attend.

The relatives are not much better with crude innuendoes, wandering hands, and obnoxious children. When big brother arrives home with the most erotic and exotic woman of mystery, questions need answers. Not to be outdone, young brother arrives home declaring his love for the mother of his children, and younger sister brings home her love from the office, leaving Griselda feeling like the old maid. The biggest shock of all is when Gramps announces his pending marriage to his twenty-something-year-old nurse, leaving his sons in an uproar and the house in a state of fragile good cheer.
The arrival of the celebrant brings further discord but brightens up Griselda’s day. The day of the wedding, old wounds and secrets begin to leak out, turning the celebrations into deliberation as a hen’s party reveals more than just gossip. The aftermath sends Griselda into a frenzy as she vents her anger on one and all. A Christmas all the family will remember—though not with good tidings…
