After the Wedding
Isabel has spent decades running a financially struggling orphanage in Calcutta, India. She travels to New York to receive a much-needed $2 million grant from wealthy media mogul Theresa, who strongarms Isabel into attending the wedding of her daughter, Grace before she'll relinquish the funds. At the wedding, Isabel realizes she's actually connected with Theresa, who wants to make Isabel a part of her family.
