In this family, opposites attract and repel. During Christmas, Alison (daughter) and Robert (father) try to keep their family together while Joslyn (mother) and Caroline (daughter) passive aggressively duke it out. As we progress through the season, we see how this small family unit uses one another to their own personal advantage while also trying to remain together.
This is a first draft and first go at a pilot idea. I usually write features, so this was a challenge for me to see if this would be a sustainable story. This is also a first attempt at dramaty. Any feedback on if humor comes through and is easy to identify with would be helpful.
