Nothing Can Break A Sisters Bond, Not Even Addiction Rachel Getting Married: Its A Homecoming To Remember

A young woman who has been in and out from rehab for the past 10 years returns home for the weekend for her sister's wedding.

A young woman who has been in and out from rehab for the past 10 years returns home for the weekend for her sister's wedding.

When Kym returns to the Buchman family home for the wedding of her sister Rachel, she brings a long history of personal crises, family conflict and tragedy along with her.

The home environment is always challenging for a recovering addict, no less so when the visit if only for a few days.

While the sisters feel genuine affection for one another, there is tension in their relationship. Rachel feels that her father dotes on Kym far too much and Kym is upset to learn that Rachel has selected a friend to be her maid of honor.

Their father is genuinely concerned about Kym's well-being but doesn't see the stress the relationship is causing. Both women also have to deal with their selfish mother who is clearly more concerned with her own well-being ahead of that of her children.

The wedding couple's abundant party of friends and relations have gathered for a joyful weekend of feasting, music and love, but Kym - with her biting one-liners and flair for bombshell drama - is a catalyst for long-simmering tensions in the family dynamic.

Underlying the family's dynamic is a tragedy that occurred many years previously and for which Kym is held by some to be responsible.

This movie is rated R for language and brief sexuality.
