Walter Meyers (Danny Glover) and his wife Grace (Rachel Kylian) proudly preside over their extended family and, every Christmas, they host a picture postcard get-together laden with food and good cheer. A few months before the festivities, Grace passes away and grief-stricken Walter pledges to continue the Yuletide tradition on his own. His sister-in-law May (Mo'Nique) arrives first, closely followed by his eldest son Christian (Romany Malco), his wife Sonya (Nicole Ari Parker) and their children. Feuding daughters Rachel (Gabrielle Union) and Cheryl (Kimberly Elise) clash from the moment they walk through the front door and youngest son Evan (Jessie Usher), who is a sporting star, arrives with painkillers in his pocket that he continues to pop to dull a recent injury. The Meyers must spend five days together under the same roof to honour Grace's memory and it is immediately evident that they will need a miracle to maintain peace and good will.
