Dysfunctional families aren’t rare in the United States due to several factors including the emphasis on individuality, the high divorce rate, and the social mobility. When a dysfunctional family comes together, sparks can fly – and not in a good way either. This is what always happens in a dysfunctional family until its beloved patriarch puts his foot down and asks his family members for a special Christmas gift: to get along with each other even for just five days while living under his roof.
