Marcy Tizard (Garofalo) is an election campaigner for a United States Senator, sent over to Ireland to pave the way for the Senator's upcoming visit, where he can emphasise his 'Irishness' to the voters back home.

But when she meets handsome barman Sean (David O'Hara), her opinion might be about to change.

Synopsis
An acerbic Boston spin doctor (Garofalo) arrives in the rural hamlet of Ballinagra, Ireland in search of local color to use as fodder in her employer's flagging Senatorial campaign. But what she finds is a rustic nightmare, as her arrival coincides with the town's hectic matchmaking festival. What's more, the local matchmaker has a bet riding on his ability to pair her off with her annoying hotel neighbor, an equally crusty and unwilling novelist.
