Synopsis


As Ed, a widower, prepares to celebrate Christmas, he calls his three grown sons back to the family home.


Games are played, Chinese food is ordered, and brotherly pranks and trashtalk distract them from the on-going issue that threatens to ruin the festivities: when identity matters and privilege is a problem, what is a straight white man to do?
