Queensland Premiere.

When a transgender woman finally has to face her family on Christmas Day, chaos ensues between her eccentric siblings and oblivious parents. 

Davina Savage wasn’t expecting much from her family when returning home after years of estrangement, but she certainly wasn’t expecting non-stop bickering between each and every member. Trying to find a reason to stay present in the chaotic mess of the household, Davina searches for the heart of Christmas through open conversations with each of her odd relations. 

Join the filmmakers, including director Madeleine Dyer and principal cast; Helen Thomson, Thea  Ravaneau and Gary Sweet for this special Queensland premiere screening and Q&A.
