Abstract:

The Silverstein family is coming together in Great Neck, Long Island, for the nuptials of the youngest daughter. Always considered the favorite, and the object of much envy and resentment. Angelica has planned a fairy tale wedding to her fiancé, a former fighter pilot. But there are storm clouds on the horizon. Gretchen, Angelica's sister, is dealing with a failed marriage and her moody teenage daughter, Justine. One brother is a callous businessman while the other is struggling with his search for love and a career. Her mother is in a battle of wills with the wedding planner, while her father, a recovering alcoholic, struggles to confront his ex-wife's lavish new life in the Long Island manor of her dreams. And her grandmother Lenore has decided it's high time to take charge and set her grandchildren on their proper paths. Then an impulsive act by Justine puts the entire wedding at risk and brings the simmering family tensions to the boiling point. Before vows are exchanged, this day will change more than one life forever.
