It is December in Belfast, Christmas is approaching and three sets of people are about to make their way to Amsterdam. Alan, a divorced university art teacher will go to Amsterdam to see Bob Dylan in concert and with the hope that the city that welcomed him as a young man will refresh those memories. What he doesn't know is that his troubled teenage son will be accompanying him. Karen, a single mother, heads to Amsterdam with her daugher's hen party, determined to give her daugher the best wedding experience she can. But she will soon begin questioning where her life of sacrifices has gotten her. And a husband treats his insecure and anxious wife with a birthday weekend away, not realizing that it will make things worse not better.

A wonderful set of linked stories of people in personal turmoil who all find something special in Amsterdam. Made me want to go there!
