A 25-year-old bride-to-be finds herself in a heart-wrenching dilemma as her parents, who are paying for her wedding, demand she uninvite her gay cousin and his boyfriend. With a guest list limited to 100 people, the bride has chosen to invite only her closest cousin, Jake, and his partner. However, her parents insist that their presence would make other guests uncomfortable due to their religious beliefs. As the conflict escalates, the bride threatens to elope, putting her relationship with her family on the line.
