When, due to a series of unfortunate events, a number of Dan’s wives converge on Piarco International Airport at the same time he is catching a flight to go on a ‘business trip’, the comedy ensues. Aided by his versatile and cunning sidekick, Perry, Dan manages to get out of some really tight spots until wives collide and everything turn ole mas! Dan ends up getting what he deserves, but not before some hilarious encounters and master deception, mainly engineered by Perry.
