    Nick is a young bachelor living in New Jersey who religiously spends every Sunday having dinner with his Italian grandparents. When he breaks the news that his employer is transferring him to Seattle, Nick’s grandparents will go to any length to get him to stay, including setting him up on a blind date that just might cause him to change his mind. This warm-hearted, boisterously funny, and intimate family comedy is about intergenerational relationships, deep familial love, and the inevitable little heartbreaks that occur as time passes and children grow.  Tengo Famiglia!
