This explosive comedy, based on a successful theater play, takes place one evening in a remote village pub during an Ice Hockey World Championship match. Many things can happen when a kidnapped bride gets drunk with the best friend of the groom and a barmaid and the only one who is able to stop and save everything, is not coming.  A laugh-out-loud film proving that what is meant to be your perfect day can sometimes turn into a not-so-perfect tragedy.
