Renowned architect Billy (Andy Garcia) and his wife Ingrid (Gloria Estefan) Herrera are a Miami-based Cuban-American couple with two daughters, recent law school graduate Sofia (Adria Arjona) and rebellious aspiring fashion designer Cora (Isabela Merced). At couples’ counseling, Ingrid tells Billy that she has had enough of his workaholic attitude and stubbornness and wants a divorce; their counselor tells them to tell their daughters right away. Ingrid wants to announce it later that day after Sofia arrives for a visit, but Sofia first announces that she is engaged to be married to fellow lawyer Adan Castillo (Diego Boneta) and that they want to marry in one month. Billy and Ingrid agree to keep their divorce a secret until after the wedding. Billy is hesitant about Sofia’s nuptials and her desire to move to Mexico with Adan to work at a non-profit instead of remaining in the United States. The two further disagree as Billy wants a big, traditional Cuban wedding while Sofia and Adan want a smaller ceremony. Meanwhile, Sofia asks Cora to make her wedding gown and her bridesmaids’ dresses, disgruntling their eccentric wedding planner Natalie Vance (Chloe Fineman).
We guess the story never gets old. We guess it all has to do with the unique father/daughter relationship. We guess it was about time the Latino perspective was told. And now, you know where to find it.
