Among rural green meadows and sweet pink cakes, guests arrive for a romantic wedding. Master of ceremonies Ellen tries to make this day an unforgettable one but she gets entangled in the monkeyshine of her half-sister, the infidelity of her husband, the first love of her daughter, the antics of her mother and the ropes of a hot-air balloon. Will they realize that only their fear stands in the way of their happiness? Who will throw the ballast overboard and take off?
