December 23, 1983: Just days before Christmas, the Oliverio family readies their Feast of the Seven Fishes, an Italian tradition stretching back to the old country of Calabria.
Amidst the preparations, Tony Oliverio (Skyler Gisondo), a young man with big dreams and a bigger heart, wonders if he'll find love this Christmas season or spend it alone with his loud and loving family- Great Grandma Nonnie (Lynn Cohen), Grandpa Johnny (Paul Ben-Victor), Great Uncles Frankie (Joe Pantoliano) and Carmine (Ray Abruzzo), his parents, his brother, and a host of friends.
When Sarah (Jessica Darrow), the girlfriend of his cousin Angelo (Andrew Schulz), introduces Tony to Beth (Madison Iseman), it looks like Tony's holiday experience might take a turn for the better.
That is unless Nonnie thinks Beth isn't good enough for her great-grandson, and Beth's Ivy League suitor doesn't steal her heart first. Come on inside, where it's warm, and the smells of cooking fish permeate the air, and let's have a visit.
