Chaos, violence, and a Cain-and-Abel-like struggle ensue when, on the day of her wedding, a young midwesterner makes the mistake of falling in love with another man--her fiance's brother. An independent romantic comedy.
As punishment for allegedly stealing money from him, Red forces sexy Freddie to marry Sam, his doofus accountant. But right before the ceremony, Freddie meets Sam's estranged, jailbird brother Jjakes -- and it's love at first sight. The pair immediately hightail it to Las Vegas, with Sam, Red, and three cops in hot pursuit. Will the gunfire, arguments, and fistfights that erupt between these losers keep the lovers from finding happiness'
