Overview

Writer and director Manuel Gómez Pereira takes a look at the funny side of same-sex marriage in this farcical comedy. Magda Carmen Maura is the manager of a posh resort hotel that is to be the site of a marriage ceremony bringing three gay couples together at once. One of the husbands-to-be is Magda's son Miguel Unax Ugalde, who will exchange vows with Óscar Daniel Hendler. However, while things are harmonious between Miguel and Óscar, Óscar's meddling mother, Ofelia Betiana Blum, is making life miserable for everyone. Narciso Paco Léon will be tying the knot with his lover, Hugo Gustavo Salmerón, but both are having family problems -- Hugo's uptight parents, Helena Mercedes Sampietro and Hector Tito Valverde, aren't sure if they're willing to attend, while Narciso's man-hungry mom, Nuria Verónica Forqué, threatens to make a spectacle of the ceremony. And actress Reyes Marisa Paredes will be on hand to see her son Rafa Raul Jimenez marry Jonas Hugo Silva, who happens to be the son of her gardener Jacinto Lluís Homar.
