Young Daniel doesn't share his dad's excitement over going to a family reunion. What's the big deal? After all, it's just going to be a bunch of old people he doesn't know, sitting around telling stories about other old people he doesn't know. Once there, though, Daniel is in for several pleasant surprises -- and a happy discovery about the meaning of family, familia.
