Content Note: Racism

The Milgrams have come together for Christmas. Nick (Sam Gittins) has brought home his girlfriend Annji (Neerja Naik). Unfortunately Nick’s grandfather (David Bradley) is a raging racist, making things incredibly uncomfortable in addition to the usual family tensions with Nick’s constantly worried mother (Abigail Cruttenden), his dominant father (Grant Masters), pregnant sister (Holly Weston) and her husband (Kris Saddler). On Christmas Day, Nick and Annji have had enough. But when they try to leave they discover that the house is covered in goo that has blocked them in.
