Like many holiday films, THIS CHRISTMAS mines the ample humour and drama of a family Christmas. Ma'Dere is the matriarch to the large and loving Whitfield family, which consists of her three daughters--Kelli, Lisa, and Mel--and her sons, Michael, Claude, and Quentin. They are an extremely attractive and successful bunch, but no sooner have they shared their first meal together than the hidden tensions begin to boil to the surface. Long-kept secrets come tumbling out, and the Whitfields soon engender enough drama to support several spin-off soap operas. There's interracial marriage, infidelity, gambling debts, an AWOL soldier, and repressed dreams of musical stardom, to name just a few of the issues they are forced to tackle in between stuffing the turkey and decorating the tree. Will their many problems and misunderstandings be resolved by Christmas day?
