When Beth's estranged father asks her to go on a road trip to Moscow with him to attend an old friend's wedding she jumps at the chance; this could be the opportunity for her to heal old wounds that could help her move on with her own relationship.

What Beth doesn't know is that Vinnie isn't so much going to a wedding as getting married himself.
