Sophie is preparing to marry Sky and wants her father to give her away. Not knowing whether Sam Carmichael, Bill Andersson, or Harry Bright is her real dad, she invites all to the wedding. When her mother, Donna, finds out her ex's have arrived, she needs the help of her best friends, Tanya and Rosie, to get through it all. But don't worry - everyone lives happy ever after.
