The wedding of Jenny Rodenhurst and Paul Simcock is memorable, but for the wrong reasons. Liz, the bride's mother, and Ted, the groom's father, make an impetuous decision that will change everyone's lives. Secrets unfold at a dentists' dinner dance, the Angling Club Christmas party, a charity horse-racing evening, and the crowning of Miss Frozen Chicken (U.K.).
