Meet the Berg family -- a chaotic mix of Jews and Gentiles, Viennese and Italians, cultured intellectuals and self-dramatizing prima donnas. Soaring classical music is as much a part of their lives as raucous family get-togethers -- and raucous family arguments. You'll enjoy the rowdy, delightful comedy of this memorable group, and you'll never forget the heartbreaking drama that overtakes them.
