Logline

Low-budget friendly retro piece, targeting Middle American/Working-Class demographics.

Synopsis

Members of the extended McCraw family, a Midwestern working-class family of Appalachian origin, gather together at the elder McCraws’ house for Thanksgiving dinner. Old demons are dug up, new relationships are built, and the secret of the family’s mixed-race heritage are revealed, much to the shock of several of the family’s racist members. Set in one of the most racially divided cities in America (Cincinnati, Ohio), this ensemble-based screenplay provides laughs, tears, and a deeply moving story that will appeal to art house and mainstream audiences alike. Audience/style comparable to RACHEL GETTING MARRIED, MARGOT AT THE WEDDING, NORTH COUNTRY, and DEATH AT A FUNERAL. Cincinnati is also a "hot" filming location, with multiple tax incentives/supportive film office.
