Résumé: Comédie dramatique. Junon Vuillard a besoin d'une greffe de moelle osseuse pour mettre en échec le lymphome rare qui menace de la tuer. Deux donneurs sont compatibles : Paul, son petit-fils psychotique, et Henri, son cadet, mouton noir de la famille et noceur irresponsable, conçu autrefois dans l'espoir qu'il sauve son frère aîné de la leucémie. En vain. Après cinq années de bannissement décrétées par sa soeur Elizabeth, une dramaturge réputée à l'autorité de qui la famille s'était soumise, Henri est invité à passer les Fêtes à la maison, où il débarque avec Faunia, sa copine excentrique. Avec la tension palpable entre Elizabeth et Henri, et les jeux de vérité auxquels ce dernier se livre avec Junon, les Vuillard s'apprêtent à passer un Noël pas comme les autres. [(c) Médiafilm] [SDM]
