For five desperate Irishmen, the perfect girl is abroad... so they place an ad in a Miami newspaper, hoping to entice American beauties to their tiny Irish village. The scheme to stir up a bit of romance works, but not the way they'd planned. Because the harder the five friends look abroad, the more they realize that what they've been looking for is right next door.
Poor Rene. He was last seen in a prisoner of war camp, trapped with his wife and both mistresses, not to mention the two idiotic British airmen and Michelle, the hardest taskmaster of the Resistance. What's worse, Cafe Rene and its gin supply are in the unreliable hands of his mother-in-law. More hare-brained schemes, more cross-dressers, more sausages, more fractured accents, more double entendres ? they're all part of the rich texture of this hugely popular sitcom from the BBC!
