It’s Christmastime and the far-flung members of the Rodriguez family are converging on their parents' home in Chicago, to celebrate the season and their youngest brother's safe return from combat overseas. For Jesse (Freddy Rodriguez of SIX FEET UNDER), coming home has rekindled feelings for an old flame, though she won't forgive him for leaving in the first place. Jesse's older sister Roxanna, a struggling actress, has been chasing her Hollywood dreams for years with little to show for it. And much to the dismay of their mother Anna, eldest brother Mauricio (John Leguizamo of THE HAPPENING, THE TAKE) brings home a high-powered executive wife (Debra Messing of WILL & GRACE, THE STARTER WIFE) who would rather raise capital than a child. But when the Rodriguezes learn that one of their own is facing a true crisis, all resentments are forgotten and familial bonds are re-affirmed.
