Maybe God is Michael?
Helen just wants to get away from 'The Jacksons Five' - another hideous Wedding invite where she's merely a spectator and not the life-long friend. Her husband is in the midst of the dance floor oblivious to their separation. Paul, the Wedding Photographer goes about his job. That's all it is - a snap here and there and in between this unlikely alliance is an inebriated Vicar challenged by his faith but not his place in Society. He's all 'ears to lost souls'.
A comedy of belief or not in all things marital, all things God, or of all things Michael and his lesser known brothers.
