Bud Hamilton has run a small logging operation in Kalispell, Montana, for many years. He’s always hoped that one or more of his four boys would succeed him in the business and reflect his traditional values, but his sons have repeatedly disappointed him. Three of his sons have pursued careers and adopted values that, in Bud’s view, range from pointless to abominable. The only one of his sons to work with him in the business is an incompetent alcoholic. Unlike Bud’s sons, his daughter does share Bud’s business interests and many of his skills. Unfortunately, Bud is completed blinded to those things because of her gender. Now Bud’s business is in serious financial trouble threatening to destroy everything built over a lifetime of toil. A Thanksgiving holiday brings this dysfunctional family together and forces them to confront their biases, broken relationships, and a series of crises that careen between tragic and hilarious.
