The friendship between a pair of buskers is fractured when one of them gets engaged. Prior to that Jean and Kate, who made their living performing comedy routines on the street, were thick as thieves until Jean surprised Kate by telling her that she has accepted the proposal of her musician lover Martin. Whereas Kate is quietly devastated, Jean's upper-middle-class mother is delighted and immediately sets out to prepare a grand and perfect wedding. Much of the ensuing comedy of this Irish-German film comes when Jean has a panic attack and makes a bad choice, the repercussions of which affect not only her relationship with Martin but also with Kate.
