The Addams Family: in their world, to be sad is to be happy, to feel pain is to feel joy, and death and suffering are the stuff of their dreams. But like any family, they face their challenges. We meet them as they gather beneath the Family Tree, 'to honour the great cycle of life and death’; the once a year occasion when every member of the clan, living and dead, come together to celebrate.
At the same time, Wednesday, daughter and ultimate princess of darkness, is turning 18. She has fallen in love with Lucas who is a sweet, clever young man from the respectable Beineke family. Her younger brother Pugsley misses the torturous attention of his sister; Morticia struggles to accept that her grown up daughter is changing; and Gomez just wishes everything could stay the same.
Uncle Fester attempts to guide the family, reminding them that their ancestors will not be able to return to their graves until love prevails. The rather traditional Beineke family are invited to come to dinner, and in one fateful, hilarious night the Addams' world is turned upside down, as secrets are revealed and relationships in both families are tested.
