When sunny optimist Harris brings his new wife home for Christmas dinner, his extended family is shocked: his bride is a sex doll. Over the course of a disastrous and musical Christmas eve, they learn how to understand and respect Harris’s love as legitimate. Oh-- and the two writer/producers play all 19 parts.

Russell and Johnny LaZebnik conceived a short filmed sketch called Darla in November 2017. It followed about an unconventional and heartwarming romantic relationship. They fell in love with Harris and Darla, and a second chapter investigating this couple’s family life - My Mom, My Dad and My Darla - was born.
