3 DAY TEST – UP Premiere Movie
PREMIERES: FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 22 at 9pm


Martin Taylor has totally lost touch with his family. He has no clue who his teenage daughter’s friends are, why his son only communicates with an electronic sign outside his bedroom door, or why his youngest child watches so much TV. Convinced the family needs to reconnect, Martin surprises the wife and kids with a little experiment – he locks them in their own home with no power, no heat, no running water, and absolutely no contact with the world outside! The sudden holiday “stay-cation” isn’t what the Taylors had in mind for Christmas, but they’ll have to team up to prove they can survive Dad’s wacky mission and their wackier relatives. But with a little planning and a whole lot of love, this just might turn into the best Taylor family Christmas yet!
