In Nicky Silver’s dramatic comedy, unrequited love of straight and gay attraction threatens the marriage of golden couple Taylor and Cynthia. As his best friend and sister-in-law secretly pine after the groom, each of their lives endures major changes, resulting from the choices they make. A tragedy tests the family loyalty of Cynthia’s sister, while Taylor’s best friend takes advantage of the opportunity as a means to fulfill his long-hidden desires. For mature audiences only, due to sexual content and strong language.
