Inspired by the director’s real story with his father. A father announces his offspring he is getting married in Mexico with a woman he met in a dating group a few months ago. Not only that, wedding is in Mexico. Both her children, and their mother’s sister, go to Mexico to try to stop this wedding by all possible means.
