A 30-something-corporate-guy falls in love with a co-worker-he just doesn't know it yet. Enjoy a Happy Hour "Heart of the Irish" margarita with him as he rides an emotional roller coaster that races across a landscape of bitterness, self-flagellation, transference, love and, finally, acceptance.

This is a very well made film about dating and the loneliness you can experience when you are too scared to act. The main character is a sad and rather pathetic man. For about a year, he has followed a pretty coworker about--but always at a distance. He is infatuated with her and she probably barely ever notices him. He even goes so far as to hang out in the same bar she frequents after work on Fridays. Yet, throughout all this, he's never gotten up the nerve to talk with her. And, in the meantime, you hear his thoughts as he castigates himself for being weak as well as telling himself that no woman would want a man like him. It's all quite sad but I liked the film for two main reasons. First, many people are like this shy guy--living in desperation and yet doing nothing to change their lives. Second, and more importantly, the film makers do not cop out and give the film a happy and unrealistic ending. No, instead, you feel for him but are left wondering if he'll ever do anything more with his life. This might be too sad for some, but due to excellent writing and film work, it's all very compelling.
