Noel Fielding plays Pete Sweet, who works on a record stall, owns a scooter and two puppies, has a best friend called Stitch (played by Julian Barratt) and is currently dating a short, dumpy ginger girl called Poppy. Who is imaginary. She was originally imagined by Pete's mate's Dave's Mum, who had always wanted a girl. Does that explain it for you? The strain of this unusual relationship soon begins to take a toll on Pete and Stitch's friendship, and the film centres around this complicated triangle, and the ethical debate surrounding the etiquette of dating an imaginary girl.
