Albert (Oscar Kightley) and Tania (Madeleine Sami) are now happily married, but can't quite seal the deal with a baby. While Sefa (Shimpal Lelisi) and Leilani (Teuila Blakely) have got two kids, they aren't married despite Sefa's proposal. Stanley (Iaheto Ah Hi) is now a trainee Deacon in the Future Church, Michael (Robbie Magasiva) has moved to Australia, and Bolo (Dave Fane) ditched his job with Sefa’s failing business to work for Sione (Pua Magasiva). As adulthood drives them apart, a crisis brings them back together: when Bolo disappears, the Minister (Nathaniel Lees) gathers up the boys to find him, somewhere, in the world’s largest Polynesian city.

Set in Auckland, New Zealand the film centres around four Samoan boys: ladies' man Michael, party boy Sefa, good boy Albert, and weird Stanley, who although they are in their mid 20s to early 30s have a reputation for behaving immaturely at special occasions such as family weddings. After four particular incidents (Michael having sex with one of the bridesmaids in the wedding limousine; Albert dropping the bride while she was hoisted up on his shoulder; Sefa getting drunk and passing out while going through the wedding cake and the table; and Stanley setting a reception hall on fire), the local minister of their Samoan church rules that the four are to be banned from the wedding of Michael's brother, Sione.
