Midnight Champagne Synopsis

A touching, passionate and heartfelt story about a young couple determined to find happiness in the teeth of life's disappointments and tragedies, and their families' disapproval.

April and Caleb have known each other for just three short months, so their Valentine's Day wedding at a chapel on the shores of Lake Michigan has both families in uproar. As the festivities unfold and the drinking begins, everyone has a lively prediction about April and Caleb's future, each the reflection of a different experience of marriage.

Meanwhile, at the nearby Hideaway Lodge, a domestic quarrel ends in tragedy. As April and Caleb being their life together, death parts another man and woman in angry violence, and the two stories intersect to explore the tangled roots of vulnerability and desire.
