Synopsis

Maria and Gino emigrated from Italy to Montreal in the 50's and married after their arrival in "the new world," a world they still haven't quite gotten used to. Their world is shattered when their son, Angelo, decides to get a place of his own. "What is so wrong with living with your parents until you get married?" they ask. They are relieved however, when Angelo's childhood buddy, Nino, decides to move in with their son. After all, Nino is an old family friend and he's a respectable cop. Their relief is short lived, as they find out that Nino and Angelo are much more than mere roommates--they're (gasp) lovers! All hell breaks loose (Italian style, of course!) Horror is followed by a general outcry, disbelief is followed by indignation, the battlefield is cleared, and "tutta la famiglia" goes to war!
