About the film (from LAAPFF):
Filmmaker Michael Kang (THE MOTEL, Festival 2006; WEST 32nd) and writer/producer Kimberly-Rose Wolter (TRE) venture into the romantic comedy genre with this delightful story of Miriam (Ileana Douglas), a thrice-married mother and her three daughters. Eldest daughter Lily (Wolter) has fear of commitment issues stemming from watching her mother go through one failed marriage after another. When her California-based boyfriend proposes to her, Lily abruptly finds herself back home in Hawaii, smack in the middle of her family’s wedding planning business, Tying the Knot, along with the accompanying family drama — the last place she wanted to end up. Her half-sister Twinny (Mia Riverton) seems to have taken on the “mothering” role, trying frantically to keep the family and business intact while addressing the chip on her own shoulder brought on by Lily’s unexpected presence. Their youngest half-sister Hoku (Janel Parrish of ONE KINE DAY, Festival 2011) seems more intent on tying her own knot than focusing on the family business. Lily finds time to reconnect with her high school sweetheart, played by handsome actor Sung Kang (BETTER LUCK TOMORROW, Festival 2002; THE MOTEL, Festival 2006; and FAST FIVE, Festival 2011). Yet why is their relationship still so elusive despite their obvious connection?
