Description The widowed Ed welcomes home his three middle aged sons for Christmas. The eldest Matt has moved back in after losing his way, while life also holds its challenges for younger brothers Jake and Drew. They enjoy brotherly banter, the nostalgic re-hashing of childhood pranks, takeout Chinese and some questionable pyjamas. But amongst the hijinks, trash-talk and smart-arse repartee, they must confront a problem that even being a happy family can’t solve: when identity matters, and privilege is problematic, what is the real value of being a straight, white man?
