Brief Synopsis: Belinda Lupe Martinez and Josephine Marie Capistrano are 25-year-old seniors at San Francisco State University. They’re also engaged. At Belinda’s birthday picnic in San Antonio, Texas, the couple announces to both of their conservative families their plan to get married. Belinda’s Roman Catholic grandmother adamantly opposes her relationship with another woman as her mother and siblings manage their shock upon learning her real identity. While Josephine has her grandparents’ support, she is pressured by her parents to marry a man to save their family business and dissuade her from being gay. The couple continues to stand up for their real identities, and they weather the chaos their revelation unleashes on everyone, including family secrets that will decide the future of their relationship.
