Abbigail Stevens, a very successful mechanical engineer, returns to work after the Christmas/New Year holiday season expecting to receive the position of head engineer for the company’s brand new multi-million dollar project (A new engine that would revolutionize the entire automobile industry), but instead is introduced to Derek Bennett…the inventor of the engine and HER NEW PARTNER! In order to save the company, Derek and Abbigail reluctantly work alongside one another to fix a glitch in the engine. One night, after weeks of working day and night together and in a moment of weakness, Derek kisses Abbigail and immediately their worlds change. They find falling in love, as a first time interracial couple, somewhat difficult and nothing like what they expected. Although society was kind, they both knew that neither of their families were going to approve. Their reality sets in when Derek takes Abbigail back home, to Charleston South Carolina, to meet his very strong, Spiritual, Southern, African American family for Christmas. Will Derek and Abbigail survive Christmas with his family? Who knows, BUT whatever can happen happens and the end result…A room full of chitlins…Abbigail running to the airport…Derek following her…Mother Bennett dragging Derek's Sister, Roberta, while covered in raw chitlins through a holiday crowded airport…and Derek's absurdly eccentric, colorful, stuck in the 70’s Aunt Ettie calling out to Jesus!
