It’s December 24, 2016 – the only time in a generation that Christmas Eve and Hanukkah fall on the same date. In honor of the occasion, Ruth and Adrienne have traveled from distant cities to their sister Lee Anne’s apartment in San Francisco. Now the brisket is in the oven and its enticing aroma induces waves of nostalgia. Ruth and Adrienne anticipate a delicious Hanukkah celebration with extended family, but Lee Anne has conflicting loyalties. Every year for seventeen years she has made brisket for the annual holiday gathering of all of her best friends in the local queer community – many of them estranged from their families. To complicate matters, there’s a surprise and possibly unwelcome holiday gift yipping in a pet carrier in the bedroom. Can an utterly charming King Charles spaniel mend the rift between the women, or will the puppy suffer collateral damage in the battle of the brisket?
