Three sisters struggle to find happiness during the holiday season as the youngest and 'bride to be' discovers that her first love has been hired as her wedding photographer.
"Donâ€™t let the title fool you, Christmas Wedding Baby is a deeply introspective family drama tied up in a tasty, commercial wrapper. This film explores the challenges that women face while respecting the plights of men. We talk out-loud about the evolving gender roles and the pressure that society and our families place on all of us. Itâ€™s so important that we support films made by people of color. Support Black Films! Support Black Film Festivals! #BlackFilmsMatter The struggle is hard enough without an audience and strong grassroots support." - Kiara C. Jones, Writer/Director
