“An intelligent comedy about love-weary people and fractured families struggling to become whole. Since her divorce, Bea wants to date plenty of men, complain about her ex and cancel Christmas. Her witty teen son Stephen is determined to create a new Truth of Christmas with stolen street signs, Santa hat and lights. Gordon, a shy math teacher, chats nightly with his late wife but can’t reach his alienated daughter. Erik the jilted forestry executive clings to New Age spiritualism while flirting with Bea. Her proudly single friend Neda aches for her son at university and mother far away in Iran.” (From the CPO Website)
