Directed by Felix Alcala and based on the novel of the same name, the film tells the story of  93-year-old matriarch, Theodora, sand her struggles with her South Carolina family who she has described as "truculent knuckleheads." As the family gathers at Theodora's home for the Christmas holiday, Theodora longs for the memories of her childhood. When Theodora's usual maid is called away, a Christmas miracle presents itself to the family when Pearl, played by Goldberg, comes back to the family as a ghost, ready to bring order back to the house.
