In a ramshackle garage miles from anywhere two cars, both of which were en route to a wedding, await repairs. One is Ron's, the ex husband of the bride to be, a man who missed his divorce and certainly doesn't want to miss his wife's wedding. A bridesmaid who is engaged to the best man owns the other, a Volvo. She has her intended's teenage daughter with her. They miss the wedding because the shop's mechanic has never seen a Volvo, much less worked on one. Ron finally does get off to the wedding, lugging a case of anti freeze as a wedding gift.
