The heart has gone out of Nanna Maria's family. There are no parties, they don't even fight anymore. Inspired by a dream of her childhood back in Fiji, Nanna demands that her grandchildren put on a big feast at which she will name her successor. The grandchildren reluctantly turn up, but as the day progresses their preparations unravel into chaos and an outraged Nanna calls the whole thing off. That's when everyone realizes they have to pull out all the stops and give the crazy old lady what she wants, and what they all need.
