Hanna, a panic-prone shoe salesman, meets Gary, an accident-prone
architect, while vacationing in an isolated Irish fishing village
on the edge of a bog. On the edge of not only a bog, but menopause
as well, Hanna experiences a hornet's nest of perimenopausal
symptoms that run circles around the prototypical hot flash.
Residual bitterness from his former wife's infidelity has Gary
trapped in a state of mental disorientation when confronted with
the stubborn insistence of deep-rooted yearnings. He also suffers
from a series of calamities that he blames on the loss of a
protective Irish-hound armband given to him by his dear grandmother
when he was a boy. Synchronous occurrences, wisdom-imparting
village locals, the gratifying albeit mortifying first-time
enactment of a sexual fantasy, and the age-old symbolism of horses,
hounds, and patron saints make Hanna and Gary's perimenopausal
affair one hilarious and sexy romp.
