Welcome to Almost, Maine, a place that’s so far north, it’s almost in Canada. And it’s not quite a town, because its residents never got around to getting organized. So it almost doesn’t exist.

Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend—almost—in this delightful midwinter night’s dream.

Hilarity abounds in this portrait of three couples successively occupying a suite at the Plaza. A suburban couple take the suite while their house is being painted, and it turns out to be the one in which they honeymooned 23 (or was it 24?) years before.

He calls an old childhood sweetheart for a little diversion in the hotel suite, and she ends up more than the match he bargained for. The last couple is a mother and father fighting about the best way to get their daughter out of the bathroom and down to the ballroom where, as Mother puts it, she must “come out of that bathroom and get married!”
