Cate never saw him again. Now Cate is a successful businesswoman engaged to a billionaire and everything seems rosy, until she receives a package containing the cremated remains of her father with a request that she take him back to their home town of New Kerry, Massachusetts and have his ashes scattered at the same place where years before they disposed of her mother's remains. He also requested his old friends sing at his memorial.
Cate reluctantly takes on this request and returns to her home town along with her assistant. While there Cate has to convince her father's two friends to put aside their long-time feud and sing together at the memorial.
