His father has threatened to bequeath the family farm to his American cousin Adam (Hamm). Rosemary (Blunt) holds a grudge for having been shamed by Anthony in childhood, and the sparks between them fly. Her mother, Aoife (Molloy), strives to unite the families before it is too late to mend the relationships.

Leslie Urdang, Anthony Bregman, Michael Helfant, Bradley Gallo, Alex Witchel and Martina Niland are producing the film.

Andrew Kramer, Jonathan Loughran, and Stephen Mallaghan will serve as the executive producers of the project.
