Naomi Westfield and Nicholas Rose are engaged to be married- but neither one of them seems too thrilled about it. When the relationship was new, things were great. But as time went on, and impressions had to be made, somewhere they lost themselves in being overly polite. Now Naomi feels stuck with a wedding she doesn’t want and it’s all paid for by her future monster-in-law, Deborah. Naomi figures she has to get Nicholas to break up with her so that she doesn’t get stuck with the bill, and she thinks she knows just how to do that. But Nicholas proves to be better at this game than she expected. Now their relationship is a “game of chicken”. Can their relationship be saved or are they already doomed?
