When thirty-two-year-old Eric Boulanger returns to his Vermont hometown to care for his mother, he attempts to revive the town's failing economy by drumming up a contest that will offer a free wedding. The winner is Bostonian Ryan Toscano whose fiancé has left to become a Jesuit, but whose beloved, outspoken, Jewish grandmother insists she find a substitute in time for the gala affair. Eric's well-intentioned brainstorm sets three millennials on an--at times hilarious at times painful--odyssey of self-discovery, one, full of surprises amid deceptions, that forces them and an entire town to confront their notions of faith and death, love and acceptance.
“That's the issue here, Faye. I'm not getting married.” “Why not? You just won this contest.” “Get serious, Faye.” “No, you get serious. If there were a doubt in your mind, you wouldn't be here today to discuss anything. You need to find a husband.”
