Getting a long with your family can be difficult, even under normal circumstances. But if your father is Father Time, and your sisters are married to Easter Bunny, Santa Claus, and Headless Horseman, family dynamics take on a whole new dimension of dysfunction.
Essie Bunny, Sharon Claus, and Hannah Horseman are ordinary sisters with extraordinary families. They have not spoken to each other since a big blow-out at a family function years earlier. When their mother dies, she leaves them a cryptic message, telling them to search for her last wishes on a videotape in their childhood home. She also tells them to set the grandfather clock to five o'clock and wait for the magic to happen.
Barely restraining their dislike of each other, the sisters return to their mother's home on a Florida beach to find a closet stuffed full of unlabeled videotapes. The grandfather clock shows nine-fifteen, just like it always has. Resentment grows as they search for the right videotape and try to understand what magic will come when the non-working timepiece is set to five o'clock.
