ABOUT OVER THE RIVER AND THROUGH THE WOODS

This hilarious yet touching comedy is about family. Nick Cristano may be living the Life of a modern young professional in New York City, but his loving grandparents never let him forget where he belongs: in New Jersey, married and eating. He’s offered a promotion in Seattle and threatens to leave. Usual tactics of blackmail and matchmaking ensue.
