The Bernstein family leads a dysfunctional existence. With three foul-mouthed kids, a caffeine-addict mother on the brink, and a less than forthcoming father, they suffer an atmosphere so heavy with collective hostility and tension it seems as if the floral-papered walls will come crashing down at any minute. Forced to the breaking point, they concede to a family therapy session, where it quickly becomes clear that what's at stake is "about a lot more than dry turkey." Repressed anger and antagonism give way to moments of self-revelation, as a patient and compassionate Dr. Livingston draws out demons and dark secrets, allowing the family to start accepting their own humanity.
