Synopsis

A stressed-out lawyer staves off retirement in order to reunite his estranged children at the behest of his aging, emotionally manipulative mother, and he realizes the importance of never giving up on family even when it seems like you'll never see eye to eye. Lenny (Timothy Spall) is getting ready for the cruise of a lifetime when he learns that his mother (Honor Blackman) has fallen ill, and he rushes to see her in the hospital. All she wants before she dies is to see her grandchildren once again gathered under the same roof. But years of infighting have left them hopelessly at odds, making the chances of a happy reunion slim to none. Nevertheless, Lenny concedes, agreeing to give it his best effort. Unfortunately it's not going to be easy since his children have all gone their separate ways: Danny (James Callis) is a powerful businessman who measures his self-worth by the level of success he's achieved and places little importance on religion, atheist Andie (Rhona Mitra) has chosen to dedicate her life to fighting for human rights in Africa, devout Yona (Hugh O'Conor) is a rabbi and family man, and Buddhist monk Charlie (Asier Newman) has adopted the name "Clarity" in an ongoing quest to achieve inner peace. But as reluctant as his children may be to admit it, the one thing that's plain for everyone to see is that they have more in common than anyone would like to admit. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
