The play was written by Young Jean Lee and offers a hilarious but deep satirical look into straight white male privilege. It follows three brothers who come home to their widowed father on Christmas Eve.  The men are all too consumed with their daily lives and midlife crises to enjoy the holiday with their only parent.

Throughout the play, the dysfunctional family shares a lot of memories, tears and raises life-changing questions about one's identity.
