When a family secret forces a son to make an unthinkable decision, the Marino family‚Äôs stability is threatened. The reverberation of new discoveries and hidden feelings verbalized ensures that the Marino family will never return to quite the same Sunday dinner table again. A heartfelt mix of comedy and drama, Tough Love is all about when it’s okay to give in and when it’s okay to give up when it comes to love, marriage and family.
