Terry, Denise and daughter Abby McShane are a typical family in North Babylon, Long Island: blue-collar, lower-middle-class, and prone to sarcastic banter as their chief form of communication. Out of the blue, Terry is contacted by his ex-fiancée, Kathleen, a former Babylonian with a booming self-help empire. It’s a collision more than 25 years in the making. And the holidays have only just begun. . .
From Wisconsin’s own James DeVita comes this World Premiere comedy about two people trying to find a way to forgive each other- and themselves- for the past.
