But don’t get all tense just yet. We’ve got the cast and plot details of When Vows Break to get you pumped up for this thrilling ride.
When Vows Break Plot
Lifetime Movies has a selection of thrillers that leave us with trust issues about everyone—from a sorority friend to the mailman. But When Vows Break is a dark tale of when trust issues lead three people to some extreme lengths.
The story revolves around Tolan, his fiancée, Ella, and Ella’s sister, Lydia. Tolan and Ella have been together for a year, but their relationship is not exactly ideal.
The wealthy and influential Tolan is possessive, controlling, and aggressive with Ella. His behavior is why Lydia has a hard time trusting him as the right guy for her sister.
According to the trailer, Ella and Lydia see a psychic about Ella’s relationship drama. And the psychic very eerily states that Tolan will be the death of her, literally. The psychic says if she marries him, she’ll end up in a watery grave. (chills!)
Despite the very clear warning, Ella is determined to marry Tolan. Lydia is, however, frightened for her sister. She tries to get Ella to call off the wedding to no avail. What Lydia doesn’t know is that Ella has hatched her own plot to get away from her abusive man.
After the wedding, Ella and Tolan honeymoon on a yacht where she mysteriously disappears in the middle of the ocean. Lydia is convinced that Tolan murdered her and wants to put him behind bars for it.
Lydia’s search for her sister leads her back to the psychic, where Ella turns up alive and well. Ella confesses to her that she staged her own death to get away from Tolan.
Lydia now finds herself stuck between a sister framing an innocent man for murder and said man going to extreme lengths to get Ella back.
