“This is the story of the McLaughlin family who live in a predominanty Irish Catholic section of Chicago. As they prepare for their annual St.Patrick’s Day party, life- changing events are taking place within their family. Their son Patrick has to decide about entering the priesthood. Their daughter Katrina shields a secret and Uncle Mick conspires with the neighbor girl Colleen who is secretly in love with Patrick.
Secrets are heard and gossip ensues. Add a live in Grandma with her old world beliefs and a mother who is neither Irish nor Catholic and a comedy unfolds.”
