    • On Christmas Eve, Richard and Marilyn — divorced parents, both going through a midlife crisis — are kidnapped by their tormented youngest son, 18-year-old Junior, and held hostage for Christmas. When they wake up bound together on a love seat at Lily’s — Marilyn’s mother’s isolated house — they find their nightmare has only just begun. Their Christmas Eve dinner with Junior’s wild grandmother, Lily, his strong-willed girlfriend, Rose, and his elder brother’s lover, Godfrey, goes from nerve-racking to explosive. Will this forced family Christmas bring closure to Junior’s demons and need for revenge?
