When teacher John Lacey returns home one evening to find that his wife has left him for his best friend, the week takes a decidedly downward turn.

Six months later and still single, the languages master notices an advert in a local newspaper publicising a '1-2-1 Club', for divorced and single people. Deciding he has nothing to lose, John signs up for the weekly get-together, and finds himself in the middle of one of the strangest groups of people he could have ever wished to meet.
