Seven years after bringing their two large families together in marriage, a devoted couple invites their entire extended family over for the holidays with predictably disastrous results. Audrey Wolders-Frobisher (Julia Duffy) and her husband Max (David Ogden Stiers) have been happily married for nearly a decade, and all that time, their large family has never come together to celebrate the holidays under one roof. What better excuse for a reunion than to invite everyone over for a Christmas celebration? While it may have sounded like a good idea at first, Audrey and Max soon find their plan backfiring when they realize everyone has someplace else that they'd rather be. When an ex-boyfriend arrives unexpectedly and an unannounced television broadcast makes an already tense situation virtually unbearable, a sensitive family secret quickly boils to the surface. Now, the family that can't even sit down at the table together for a peaceful holiday meal will discover the importance of getting along despite the fact that they can't seem to agree on anything. Joey Lawrence and Patty Duke co-star.
