In the fields below the Sugar Loaf hills of Wicklow, Peter and Maureen are a perfect couple. Moira and Fingle are simply friends. When Moira agrees to give Fingle a chance at love if he can climb the cursed Big Loaf to find the thing up there with the big teeth, wandering eyes and worse hands, he and Peter set off to climb the peak, meeting a lost wombat on the way. But the magic at the top of the hill swaps their bodies and minds and on their return confusion is rife and it seems that Fingle has lost his love for good. But can she see past his furry wombat body to the true man inside, or will his bitter mother and her magic well ruin everything?
