The Stones, a New England family,
have their annual holiday gathering. The eldest
son brings his girlfriend home to meet his parents,
brothers and sisters. The bohemian Stones greet
their visitor a high powered, controlling New Yorker
with a mix of awkwardness, confusion and hostility.
Before the holiday is over, relationships will unravel
while new ones are formed, secrets will be revealed,
and the family Stone will come together through
its extraordinary capacity for love.
