Chris and Paul are about to register their Civil Partnership, the closest thing you can have to a same-sex marriage in England. The registrar has been booked, the reception is all laid on, and the invitations are ready to go out. Now, only two weeks away from the ceremony, all that remains is for them to break the news to Chris' parents. But that shouldn't be too much of a problem -- everybody loves a wedding, right?
Right -- unless the father of one of the bridegrooms cannot accept the fact that his son is marrying another man. Chris, an only child, is heir to both the family name and fortune. Clinging to the misguided conviction that Chris' homosexuality is merely a transient phase, Roger resolves to do whatever is necessary to secure his family's future. But stubbornness runs in the family -- like father, like son -- and when things come to a head, well, who knows what might happen?
