Jennifer (Nia Fairweather) and Gabby (Adriana DeMeo) are best friends in high school. It's Christmas 1999 and Jennifer is about to tell her friend that she loves her beyond simple friendship. But they have a silly fight on the phone and both vow to never speak again. This leads Gabby to have sex with a bad boyfriend, which leads to pregnancy and, more than likely we learn later, her suicide. As Jennifer is about to marry David (writer-director Otoja Abit), the polished son of two wealthy entrepreneurs, David's mother's bossiness catapults Jennifer out of the house to clear her head. We learn her hesitations about the wedding have less to do with a controlling mother-in-law than with memories of her gay first love. Enter Azrael (Cooper Koch), Jennifer's guardian angel. He sends Jennifer into alternate universes, one where David is married with kids and doing just fine without her. In this universe, Jennifer lives with the no-longer-dead Gabby and they're planning a wedding, if they can get the priest (Chris Noth) to marry them in the church they've attended all their lives. He ignores church law and performs the rite, at which point the angel Azrael shows up again, making Jennifer an offer about which life she wants to choose.
