When a group of friends and family gather to celebrate a wedding, things take an unexpected turn when the groom runs away.
At first there is the usual chaos and stress of any wedding: family members get drunk and pushy, people in the wedding party run late and even the cake is missing.
But soon we realize the groom is having second thoughts. Not because he doesn’t love his bride, but because he hates weddings.
After more stress ensues, he decides to run for the hills. For the bride, this is the final cherry on the cake (which is still missing).
