Synopsis
Frank Giorgio's once orderly life has been thrown into chaos since the bank that loaned him money for a restaurant addition to his lobster business has folded. With the threat of a public auction looming, the very proud and stubborn Frank, his family and eccentric crew attempt to save the Brooklyn lobster shop that is the cornerstone of their identity. Frank's son Michael, who has chosen a much different life for himself in the tech world of Seattle, and his girlfriend Kerry return home for Christmas and, for better or worse, are dragged into the family drama that unfolds. Michael's childhood home has been sold, and his mother Maureen is separating from Frank. Over the course of two extraordinary weeks, he finds himself sleeping on a pull-out couch with his dad, catching wandering lobster crates in the bay and trying to mend his relationship with Kerry in a gaudy Russian motel. While Michael joins the sometimes humorous Lobster Farm rescue efforts, Maureen is trying to keep her distance, staying with her daughter, son-in-law Justin and baby granddaughter as she looks for a place to live and establish her own identity apart from the lobster business that has consumed her life, her house and her husband. Lauren, who has stood by her father working at the Lobster Farm, strives to keep the lines of communication open while the family struggles to hold it together despite the imminent threat to their business.
