A mother's attempt to maintain fairness in her blended family has led to a heated dispute over room choices. When she married her husband six years ago, they bought a four-bedroom house for their children, Annie (16) and Shawn (19), from previous relationships. The kids initially agreed on room arrangements, but now Shawn wants to switch, accusing his mom of favoritism when she refuses to force Annie to comply. As tensions rise, the family's relationships are put to the test.

Summary: A Family Torn by Room Choices 🌪️

In a blended family, a mother tries to maintain fairness as her stepson, Shawn, demands to switch rooms with his stepsister, Annie. Initially, Shawn chose the larger room, while Annie took the two smaller ones. Now, inspired by Annie's creative use of her space, Shawn wants to switch, but Annie refuses. Accusations of favoritism fly as the mother stands her ground, unwilling to force Annie to change. As the conflict escalates, the family's relationships are put to the test.
