It is Peter and Rita’s wedding day and their love and joy are evident to everyone. But Rita’s sweet gesture of giving a kiss to an elderly stranger turns their world upside down when her soul is exchanged with his. Peter is at first confused by Rita’s dramatic personality change, but once he realizes what has happened he searches frantically for the old man and to find a way to switch back their souls. Yet, even as he struggles with this overwhelming, and increasingly alarming situation, he comes to realize that his love for Rita truly transcends any physical form.
