Summary
Judd Foxman and his siblings come together for the first time in years in order to honor their father's final request-to sit Shiva. The week long event quickly spirals out of control and the family falls victim to old squabbles and grudges. Secrets are revealed, shocking discoveries are made and old wounds are reopened. Judd spends the week try to process not only the death of his father, but the demise of his marriage. Will the Foxmans survive all the family togetherness?
Critique
This is dysfunctional family drama at its finest! Full of dark humor and raw emotions, fans of the show Arrested Development will enjoy the Foxman family and their drama.
