Jack (David W Ross) is a gay Brit living in New York. When his brother (Grant Bowler) gets killed in a car crash, Jack is left to raise his niece, Tara, with his sister-in-law Mya (Alicia Witt). When Jack's work visa is denied moving back to England isnt an option. With Tara, now seven, and Mya, struggling through medical school, he cant leave them behind. Faced with deportation and no other means to stay in America, Jack marries his lesbian best friend Ali (Jamie-Lynn Sigler). When Jack falls for a Spanish architect Mano (Maurice Compte), a U.S. citizen, and I.C.E officers detain and interview Ali and Jack, a terrified Ali files for divorce. Mano, ready for commitment, believes he can marry Jack and keep him in the country. Their lawyer informs them that even though Mano is a citizen, immigration is a Federal level right not afforded to gay marriage on a State level. Jack will be deported unless he marries another woman.
