Sandy's new boyfriend, Bo, meets all the criteria for a good partner (and she knows it)! However, when she brings him home for the holidays, her dad, Mark, thinks he knows better. Bar owner Mark Berzins has seen decades of relationships-gone-wrong, and is determined to poke some holes in this one. A well-intentioned investigation into the new boyfriend leads to awkward misunderstandings, spilled secrets, and heartwarming moments. This intimate and humorous exploration of love, in all its forms, is an instant holiday classic. Based on the book and life of Denver bar owner Mark Berzins and cleverly reimagined by screenwriter, Eric Ustian.
