In the small southern town where they live, Ellyn has created problems for them in the past as she has had a crush on Jameson since high school, some twenty or more years ago. Jameson has never had an interest in Ellyn, having always liked her sister Maggie. Although Maggie married Chuck, her high school sweetheart, it ended in divorce, mainly because of Chuck’s abusive nature throughout the marriage. Jameson and Maggie reconnected years later and plan to marry, and this is the reason, supposedly, Ellyn has planned the celebration.
Ellyn has ulterior motives as she plans to get Chuck and Maggie back together so that she can be with Jameson. The flaw in her plan, however, is that Chuck is a ticking time bomb with a temper that is truly unpredictable, which has dior consequences for all family members involved.
