The Wells family really wants to be together for Christmas. Idealistic Amy is home from college, former thespian, Grandpa, is full of spunk and ready to entertain, Kimmie is on the roof of the tree house communing with the birds as a hot letter from her principal rests in her backpack. Dad is desperately trying to make it home from across the nation, limping along from one obscure town to another experiencing slice after slice of quirky Americana and . . . what's going on with Mom?
