Film Summary

With the recent passing of her mother, and her father dead since she was a teenager, all Evie has now is her best friend Grace. This is why, after snagging a DNA Kit from a recent goodie bag at a catering event gig, Evie is surprised she has family in the UK. While Grace is a bit hesitant, Evie makes contact, and Oliver is charming and English, making Evie comfortable enough to accept his invitation to a family wedding. One in which the overwhelming Walter is the host of, and with his flirtation, Evie grows increasingly in love with what Oliver has introduced her to.

But then, between a series of micro-aggressions and rather curious moments during her less than three-night stay, red flags begin to pop up everywhere for Evie. For if it isn’t Mr. Fields being rude, it is a woman named Viktoria. And while Walter, Oliver, and Evie’s ladies maid Mrs. Swift, and a woman named Lucy are nice, something feels off, and boy, is Evie right about that.
