His plan is to get back with his ex-girlfriend Bridget McGovern (Laura Fraser) and eventually return to the States, where they can run a gas station together. Even though he claims he's a changed man, the townsfolk aren't happy to see him again and Bridget is already set to marry another guy. After buying a potato-chip delivery truck and reuniting with his salesman dad (Tom Hickey), Billy runs into his old lowlife friends who are plotting a big scam.
