SYNOPSIS:

We first meet Joe and Emily on their wedding day, as they sit in the center of a large circle of friends and family during a traditional Quaker ceremony. We then skip ahead six years to learn that the two have been long since separated, though they never officially divorced. Emily has moved on and is now engaged to Mikey, her cheerful new boyfriend, whose passion is the Unicycle Football League that he created. Emily and Joe agree it’s time to finally get divorced, but Emily's parents stand in their way. Emily’s mother tells her that they will never accept a new husband unless she and Joe do what is right: they must go door-to-door to all their wedding guests, explain themselves, and have the signatures on their marriage certificate crossed-off. This is not an official Quaker tradition but instead the whim of a community-minded mother. As this estranged husband and wife goes on their quest, they encounter a new set of characters and situations at each stop they make. Their old friends and relatives offer a variety of helpful advice and stubborn refusal to cross off their names. Along the way, Emily’s fiancĂ© Mikey joins them and the three then work together to reach their goal, which becomes harder to define as the trip goes on.
