Following the journey of Nikki and her crazy family during the Christmas season, get ready to laugh and gasp at this film directed by Ayanna Shon. Ayanna started paving her way in the film industry by studying Visual Communication and Film Design at ITT Technical Institute in Bessemer, interning with Clear Communications and working behind the scenes at local theaters. She then went on to open CBA Film Studios in 2015, a full-service production business.

“My goal for the movie is that it becomes a staple comedy Christmas movie. I want this is the movie to be the go-to movie for laughter and a feel-good holiday movie. 

After my grandmother had passed away, I started removing myself from family and friends. It was then when a family member reached out to me with a story that had me dying laughing and I knew I needed to make something of it.”
