Another Christmas Party
This is Ethan's last Christmas before he can escape his mad family and run away to college. This was supposed to be the year everything went right, but when his sister Charlie brings home a fake boyfriend who just happens to be their Dad's real boyfriend, only chaos can ensue. This may just be their most mad Christmas yet. Ethan can only hope that they don't have to move Christmas...again!! A dry, wine swilling Australian mum, a charismatic, musicals loving dad who doesn't how to come out, his boyfriend who isn't supposed to be there, their daughter who tends to invite chaos, their son who's trying to hold it all together and a philosophising yoga teacher (how did he get into this?)... It's a queer holiday farce that feels like a Hallmark Christmas movie. An eccentric family, with their own holiday traditions, who make you remember why family gatherings are best appreciated in small doses, and yet you desperately want to spend more time with them. A complex family tale of typical holiday stress, where at the end of the day they don't lose sight of the fact that they love each other.
