MY MOST IMPORTANT DAY

A young couple is getting married while the soon to be wife is saying goodbye to an affair. During the wedding the bride feels unease, discomfort and misplaced, trapped in her situation, without seeing any real option for getting out. During the games of the wedding reception she undiscloses that fact of her affair, but the husband is unable to recognize it as such, blindsided by all the pressures of respecting traditions and the expectations of the family. The wife is unable to do more to step out of this situation, and first lives the tension of acknowledging the importance of traditions and experiencing the effect it has on her.
