The eldest, prodigal son of five children in the Stone family returns home to Thayer, Mass. to introduce his uptight, soon-to-be fiancee to his tough, tight family during Christmas weekend. Out of her element, yet determined to fit in and make a good impression, she ends up overwhelmed by their hostile reception and begging her sister to join her for emotional support. When her sister arrives, everyone's fears and insecurities are out of the closet (though they still don't articulate them to each other), and the emotional free-for-all triggers long needed solutions for one and all.
