1983. Christmas on the Horgans’ turkey farm is a hectic time and 14-year-old Sharon must do her share of the plucking. It isn’t a particularly fun way to pass the time, although things look up when she meets easy-on-the-eye fellow plucker James. The flirty teens agree to meet later that night, but when James doesn’t turn up it sparks a chain of events that spell disaster for the Horgans, mainly the tea-leafing of all their turkeys. With fingers pointing at Sharon’s young suitor, can the family salvage Christmas?
