After too many failed romances, Emmy Towne, an elementary school teacher, final finds Darryl Cunningham, a successful chemical engineer, on an online dating site. Eight months later the two are married and settled nicely into a two-bedroom in Fredericksburg. But when it comes time to meet Emmy's family-who has a bad track record of scaring off boyfriends- Emmy starts to get cold feet. Plus, she has a sneaking suspicion that her mother, Beverly, a self promoting know-it-all advice columnist, and her father, Martin, a goofy podiatrist with photo albums of his 'favorite feet' will freak when they learn Darryl is black, This quirky 'dramedy' unfolds the day after Christmas, as Emmy and Darry arrive (intentionally) late to her parents house in the Maryland suburbs. In a few hours, the gang's all there- including Emmy's moody, leather-and-lace clad and suspiciously Asian-looking sister Grace, and her unpredictable, unhinged brother Rick, currently on the run from the law for stealing $100,000 worth of office supplies in an effort to build a new bulletproof plastic. The new couple just hopes to survive with their marriage and sanity intact.
