Patrick O'Neil is a travel agent who never goes anywhere. His closest
confidante, Sharon, is chain-smoking her way to singles hell, passing up man

are sagging more visibly than its customers, can't agree how best to interfere

straight-as-an-arrow younger brother, has fallen in love with a beautiful
