This is a comedy drama of a young woman who has just got married to her long term boyfriend and now has doubts. She acknowledges she has been repressing her sexual attraction for women for some time, but that these feelings are genuine. Especially relevant at this moment, after kissing the groom’s sister, Olivia, an out and confident lesbian, at the hen party the night before. When Francis, Eve’s husband, finally finds her, sitting alone in contemplation, he is anxious and confronts her over her disappearance, believing she has cheated on him. Eve quickly refutes this, confiding that she believes she is now lesbian. Francis is incredulous at this idea, assuring her that attraction to both genders is common, but does not detract from their love which is genuine. Eve seems swayed and the newlyweds return to their family and friends. Just as the group pose for the official wedding photo, Francis looks over at Eve, noticing her anxiety and questions her. Eve leaves in tears, determined, yet vulnerable, as heated exchanges erupt between the mothers, a distraught husband goes into meltdown and the wedding party absorb the shock of Eve’s departure.
