Synopsis

The heart has gone out of Nanna Maria's family. There are no parties. They don't even fight anymore. Inspired by a dream of her childhood back in Fiji, Nanna demands that her grandchildren put on a big feast at which she will name her successor. The grandchildren reluctantly turn up, but as the day progresses their preparations unravel into choas, and an outraged Nanna calls the whole thing off. That's when everyone realizes that they have to pull out all the stops and give the crazy old lady what she wants, and they all need.
