Family outcast April lives in a beat-up apartment in New York's Lower East Side with her boyfriend, Bobby. In order to spend some time with her dying mother, April invites her conservative suburban family to her place for a Thanksgiving feast.

Her dad tries to think positively, while sister Beth flaunts her good-girl status and brother Timmy captures it all on film.
