How can one possibly enjoy a nice wholesome dinner with their family if they all hate each other? Oh boy. That's not good.
"Family Dinner" is a dark comedy about Jane, a Phd student, who is trying so hard to finish her dissertation but her family is not impressed.
They never were. All she can do is keep trying and trying until finally... uh oh. Where'd she go? She's gone.
Don't worry. She's with "family"... whatever that means....
