It is the morning of Joe's wedding. He opens his eyes to find himself on a park bench beside the sea, dressed in torn tights and a cape. And that's not his only chilly awakening. Joe is in Holyhead, miles away from his wedding in Dublin. And he doesn't even remember how he got there.
An old man joins him on the bench. Marty is local, so how does he know so much about Joe? And why is he so interested in talking to a stranger in a Superman suit, who clearly has no time for chit-chat?
Can Marty help Joe solve his dilemma and answer the fundamental question: does he really want to get married at all?
