About The Show

An impulsive wedding day. A bizarre body swap. Love must conquer all.

After a whirlwind romance, Peter and Rita decide to get married. At their wedding, a mysterious old man shows up and insists on kissing the bride. As the couple honeymoons, Peter begins to realize that the woman by his side is not quite his wife. The kiss from the mysterious old man caused his and Rita's souls to switch bodies. Peter must race against time to track down the old man and free his young love’s spirit that's trapped in an aging and diseased body before it’s too late.
