Months after the U.S. Supreme Court legalizes same-sex marriage Paul Blinker, event planner extraordinaire, turns into a full-fledged groomzilla. When he receives word that his unknown “shut-in” of an aunt has passed away, he holds a formal memorial service for her. After all, what better opportunity to test out his reception’s color palette? A day-of shift in plans for his aunt’s service coincides with a change in plans for Paul’s own life as input from his friends and fiancé suddenly leaves him with no control over either situation. His well-honed vision for his future in shambles, Paul must confront the possibility of burying his definition of family along with his mysterious aunt.
