A Wedding Like That
The whole family knows that Sam Kessler's daughter Laura is gay except Sam. When same sex marriage is allowed, they tell him a week before her wedding. While trying to come to terms with this revelation, Sam learns there are more gay people in his life than he ever realized. Because of the protesters at the courthouse, his wife Tami asks Sam to go with his daughter and her partner Joan to get their marriage license. When a reporter stops Sam in front a crowd of people protesting gay marriage rights, people think he has come out at gay. Facing ridicule at work and other places, he learns first hand the type of stinging abuse his daughter and others gay people have faced.
Joan’s parents, who are deeply religious, have cut her out of their lives years ago. Desperately wanting to reunite with them, Joan conveniences Tami to call Debra, Joan’s mother, and arrange for both sets of parents to meet for a friendly meeting. The get-together goes awry when Sam takes offense at an off-hand comment by Oliver, Joan’s father.
Debra surreptitiously asks Tami to call her. They meet the next day and Debra reveals that she misses her daughter and wants to go to the wedding but does not have the courage to tell Oliver. Tami “gives” her the courage.
Shortly before the wedding, Sam overhears Debra consoling a sobbing Joan because her father has rejected her. Sam confronts Oliver.
