Five days together? Oh joy.


Almost Christmas
A feel-good ensemble comedy-drama for this time of year, about a beloved patriarch who asks his family for one gift this holiday season: to please just get along with each other. If they can fullfill that wish and spend the next five days under the same roof without killing each other, it will be a Christmas miracle.
