It was supposed to be a joyous celebration in matrimony. Eileen loved Joey and their backgrounds didn't seem to matter. But from the moment the two families arrived for the wedding, there was tension in the air. Joey has been groomed to continue the "Family Tradition" in waste management. But, his wife-to-be had other ideas. Suddenly the joyous festivities take a most tragic turn. A beloved family member is sleeping with the fishes. It's a clash of cultures that will leave you audience in stitches!
