This groom has a secret. So does his brother in law.

Sisters (姐妹)

The Chinese custom for bridesmaids, or “sisters”, is to playfully impede the groom’s progress as he comes to fetch his bride on the wedding day. Things take on an unexpected turn when a cheeky relative at the wedding volunteers to take on the role of a bridesmaid.

當姐姐出嫁的那天,新郎正是自己的舊情人。看似風平浪靜的一切,卻處處暗藏著可能瞬間爆發的地雷。
