Kym is a former model. Kym is in rehab. Kym's family is well heeled but extremely dysfunctional. Kym is responsible for a horrible tragedy that no one will talk about. Her sister, Rachel, is about to be married, and Kym is granted a leave to attend. Kym wants desperately to fit in, to be a normal person, but she doesn't know how. In her slouchy dark clothes, with a choppy, angular haircut, she seems programmed to shut everyone out. Kym, as a participating member of the wedding, finally comes to understand that giving up a certain amount of control in the interest of a mutual good is a fair definition of the state of marriage, and sometimes, you have to take the risk and see what happens, for better or for worse.« Less

SummaryAdd a Summary
Rachel's sister, Kim, returns home for Rachel's wedding from a drug rehabilitation centre. The film is shot in a documentary style and the plot details are slowly revealed. Although, all the situations are fairly natural and believable as a doc-movie style, it is difficult to grasp all the details that are revealed on the first viewing. For example, it wasn't clear that the first empty bedroom Kim walked into after talking to Rachel belonged to her deceased brother. The movie's end is rather open as it ends with the return of the rehabilitation staff member, come to pick Kim up at the end of weekend.
