A crisis in midlife and a midlife crisis are not necessarily the same thing. The comfortable life of wedding photographer Arthur is upset when his rare and ugly sports car is stolen. After being lovestruck by the voice of Etta, who he hears but doesn’t see at an Irish-Inuit wedding, he becomes embroiled in a misguided plot involving the kidnapping of Etta’s pair of poodles. Nathaniel Boot is a disillusioned diamond smuggler desperately hanging on to his reputation. Events lead to them all becoming entangled in a twisted tale of love and loss.
