Lenny Rubins, (Timothy Spall) an up-tight lawyer, has to put his dream retirement on hold when his ailing mother (Honor Blackman) emotionally blackmails him into reuniting his estranged children.
They may be peas from the same pod, but in Lenny's eyes his grown up children are certainly not from the same planet: a survival-of-the-fittest hard-nosed capitalist (James Callis), an outspoken eco-warrior committed to the cause (Rhona Mitra); a Buddhist Monk; and to cap it all a bible bashing born-again Rabbi!
They might quarrel, fight and never see eye to eye, but they are still family. However it is going to take a whole lot of soul searching and sacrifice for all involved to come together in this heart warming, family comedy. The Rubins will have you thinking of your own family with a smile.
