Meet the dysfunctional Duncan family. Emma Duncan, a hypochondriac with memory problems, is about to be married. Her brother, Todd, returns home and announces he has AIDS. Todd is also busy assembling dinosaur bones he discovers in the backyard. As her wedding approaches, Emma’s fiancé, Tommy, falls in love with Todd at which point Emma goes quite spontaneously deaf. During a frenzied wedding rehearsal, after Tommy is informed he’s HIV positive and Emma shoots herself with a gun given to her by her brother as a wedding gift, the possibility that Todd is destroying his family rears its head. Adult situations and graphic language. Mature audiences only.
