Summary Junon is the matriarch of the troubled Vuillard family who come together at Christmas when they learn she needs a bone marrow transplant from a blood relative. Unfortunately, the Vuillard's shared history of physical and mental illness, estrangement, self harm, and loss doesn't lend itself to the idea of a cheerful holiday season. But if a scheme concocted by three of the youngest family members works as they hope, the Christmastime reunion may finally bring peace to them all
