Driven by her career, she has no time for the pleasures of life, much to the chagrin of her mother who wants to see her settle down. This drives a wedge between the two as Candy finds herself avoiding her mother’s calls for obvious reasons. Fate however plays a prank on her as she finds herself trapped by a promise to her mother, and must pay her a visit over the weekend with her “boyfriend”. A character obviously non-existent in her life. This starts the quest for a man for the weekend, coming to an end when she agrees on a business deal with Bryan Mbah, an intern with her firm, who unknown to her, is a secret admirer.
This is how, Candy and Bryan head off for a weekend at her mother’s were they are joined by her senior sister Christelle who is their mother’s favourite. She is the yardstick by which Candy is always measured, and her husband Richard. We are taken through a roller-coaster weekend wherein age old sibling rivalries emerge, family secrets are revealed. Bryan then gets a better picture of why Candy is the way she is, deepening his admiration for her. The weekend however takes a turn for the worst when Candy’s story turns on its head and her man for the weekend is revealed for who he really is a hired hand. Tempers flare, the family splits in discord with each person going their way, attempting to resume their lives as they were before. Christelle’s marriage is already fragile before the weekend get-away is crumbling.
