The film is about a waiter, just your average Joe, becomes so infatuated with his mysteriously beautiful customer, Jane, that he cannot focus to do his job correctly. Upon her request for sugar in her coffee, his imagination creates elaborate fantasies about a life with her including romantic walks in the park, a marriage proposal, wedding, etc. Lapsing in and out of reality and fantasy, comedy ensues on all fronts. In the end, though, was it ALL just in his head?
