Cables fly back and forth across the Atlantic that long ago December. Neither set of parents agree on anything, and the wedding of her dreams is rapidly becoming the wedding of her nightmares. She’s in a foreign country with her fiancé’s parents and wants to please them, but she’s also an only child who adores her parents back home. In the end, she doesn’t wear the dress she wanted, it's not Christmas, and her parents aren’t there. She still looks for them as she walks alone up the aisle in the cold light of day.
