Produced By: Yoav Factor and Jonathan Weissler

Written and Directed By: Yoav Factor

Starring: Timothy Spall (Harry Potter Films, The King's Speech, Sweeny Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street), Rhona Mitra (Shooter, Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, "Boston Legal", "Nip/Tuck"), Honor Blackman (Goldfinger, The Avengers, Bridget Jones Diary)



An uptight lawyer, Lenny Rubins, (Timothy Spall - The King's Speech), has to put his dream retirement on hold when his ailing mother (Honor Blackman - Goldfinger) emotionally blackmails him into reuniting his estranged children for a holiday gathering.

They may be peas from the same pod, but in Lenny's eyes, his grown-up children are certainly not even from the same planet: a ruthless control-freak and hard-nosed capitalist (James Callis - Battlestar Galactica), an outspoken, argumentative eco-warrior committed to the cause (Rhona Mitra - Underworld: Rise of the Lycans), an outer-worldly Buddhist Monk; and to cap it all, a bible bashing born-again Rabbi!

While they might quarrel, fight, and perhaps even be starting a war in Africa, they are still family. It is going to take a whole lot of soul-searching and sacrifice for everyone to come together in this heart-warming and comic family reunion that will have you thinking fondly of your own.
