Christmas is far from a time of joy for Lydia. She has to cope with the bimbo cousin from hell, her adulterous aunt, a father obsessed with his barbecue, his drunken best mate Frank, a mother who doesn't understand and a season that seems to mean less about the birth of some guy who eventually got nailed to a tree and more about beer, brandy butter and giant teddy bears. However, the arrival of Ray, Frank's handsome and understanding son, and a decidedly 'angelic' little boy, means that maybe Christmas will mean something special to Lydia this year after all.
