THE HOLIDAYS​ IS LOOKING FOR A MALE UNDERSTUDY

​Christmas at Mother Holiday’s Café is a family tradition on the west side of Chicago. This year the Holidays are in need of a Christmas miracle because their matriarch is suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, unable to cook, at risk of losing her café, and is now being cared for by her eldest son Joseph and his wife Mary who are in hopes of getting help from their children and Joseph’s younger brother Jerome to pull off this year’s festivities. Generations come together to face a painful truth and decisions are made to restore hope.
