In the Bryant family’s Hyde Park home, prodigal son Jesse shows up for a family wedding with his Swedish “friend,” who is actually his boyfriend, turning the family reunion into a family showdown. Evy can’t understand why her younger brothers are so mysterious and distant; Jesse is afraid to be true to himself and honest with his family; and no one can understand why Tony is so eager to get married. Modern Family meets Soul Food as these siblings try to bridge their differences with a little help from God, card games and their Immediate Family.*
