Alan (Gleeson) works at the tourism desk in Dublin Airport. Alice (Paré) is an American on standby. Eight years ago, Alan and Alice had a romance that ended badly. Now, every hotel room in Dublin is booked and despite initial frostiness, they decide to spend the evening getting to know each other again. Both will tell lies about how well the last eight years have gone, but as the night goes on they gradually come to realize that perhaps they are more compatible than ever before.
