Madeira (Maddie) Cutler works in the fashion industry as a designer for one of the top New York fashion houses. She also collects vintage clothing. As the oldest of four children, she's anxious to get home for her sister Sherry's wedding to Justin. Eve Myers, Maddie's best friend and flat mate, comes along to visit her family and enjoy the break from New York. They arrive to find the situation tense as Jasmine Updike, a college friend of Justin's, is acting more like it's her wedding rather than Sherry's. What's worse is that Justin's mother, Deborah, is aiding in the take over of the wedding plans. As if that wasn't bad enough, Jasmine turns up dead, strangled with Sherry's wedding veil, and Sherry is nowhere to be found. And when she does get back she refuses to say where she was. Maddie can't let her sister take the blame, so she and Eve swing into action to prove Sherry's innocence. From official release/information:
