About the film:
Doug and Abi are taking their three children on a trip to
a big family gathering. They are in the midst of a difficult divorce, and have
asked the kids to keep it a secret from their extended family. But as the
inevitable feuds kick in, a completely unexpected turn of events involving the
children causes further tensions to rise to the surface. And with the
repercussions that ensue - hilarious and emotional in equal measure - the
family are forced to put aside their differences and work together or else risk
losing what they hold most dear.
