In front of 100 people.Welcome to the world of the best man - as seen from the inside out.With the minutes ticking away Albert finds himself surrounded by fun-loving extroverts who have zero understanding of what his mind is going through. Each and every one of them pile on the pressure, oblivious to Albert's ever growing inner turmoil.As Albert battles to control his nerves and wrestle with his over-active imagination, the idea of escape becomes all encompassing.
