Synopsis: Circumstances force a bride and groom, also successful business partners, to ask a total stranger — an aging, oddly behaving man — to be the witness at their wedding. To kill time, the young couple also ask him about the women he loved. The result is unexpected, and their accidental meeting dramatically changes the fates of all three.
