Henry and Rebecca form a good couple and live their relationship very happy. Even so, there are several palpable differences between the roots of one and the other. He is a man trained under the guidelines of a society that grew up in the poverty of the Midwest, and now is dedicated to collaborating in the parish choir. For her part, she is a woman who belongs to a fairly wealthy family and whose social position corresponds to the great city in which they have always lived: Los Angeles.
But the protagonists have already become accustomed to living with the multiple inequalities they have had especially throughout their childhood, so they have decided to engage in marriage. Henry takes advantage of a meeting held by both families in Madison, Wisconsin, a few days before the holiday season begins to announce the good news, a time well marked to announce such important news as the couple’s wedding.
Everyone tries to make a great effort to understand the position of the family of the other spouse, trying to reach an agreement as reasonable as possible so that the ceremony is remembered by Rebecca and Henry as the most special day of his life. Despite this, it will not be easy to deal with the dissimilarities between the origins of both, something that the main stakeholders in the event will realize when they have to live together and reach a legal agreement that strengthens their union.
