Q: How does Heather Greenblotz, the thirty-one-year-old heiress to the world's leading matzo company, celebrate Passover? A: Alone. In her Manhattan apartment. With an extremely unkosher ham and cheese panini.

But this year will be different. The Food Network has asked to film the famous Greenblotz Matzo family's seder, and the publicity op is too good to, hem, pass over. Heather is being courted by the handsome director and the subtly sexy cameraman, and she's got family coming out of her ears. It's enough to make a formerly dateless heiress feel like a princess.

Here's hoping that no one will discover that a Greenblotz family seder is about as real as the Easter bunny.

With the "family" cast of her mailman as her uncle, an ancient shopkeeper as Grandma, and her best friend as . . .well, her best friend, Heather thinks she's pulled it off. Until her bisexual father, his lover and her estranged mother stage an unexpected walk-on. As the live broadcast threatens to become a Greenblotz family expose, Heather must dig deep to find faith in love, family and, most of all, herself . . .
