Summary
The Gold family celebrates the Passover seder together every year. Matriarch Sylvia wants this seder to be extra special because her youngest daughter, Becca, is bringing her boyfriend and his parents. This is no ordinary meet-the-parents, however, as they are part of the legendary Rothschild family. Sylvia goes a little overboard in her preparations<U+2014>she even hires a famous chef to cook the dinner. Her other daughter, Sarah, finds these preparations especially egregious, as Sylvia has never done anything remotely as grand for Sarah<U+2019>s longtime (and non-Jewish) beau, Joe. Things get even more chaotic when son Gideon arrives with his new fiancée. Through the course of dinner , secrets are exposed and resentments are aired. Can the family recover in time for the High Holy Days?
