Sabrina Watson (Paula Patton) and Jason Taylor (Laz Alonso) are engaged, but their family backgrounds couldn't be different. The Watsons are upscale and the Taylors are from a working class background. Jason's mother decides she doesn't want the wedding to happen and does all that she can to split them up. When the two families get together in Martha's Vineyard for the wedding, Sabrina has to decide whether she can deal with her future mother-in-law's abrasive behavior and manipulations.
