The small Scottish Highland village of Inverdoune has a very important soccer match on its collective minds. It's the annual grudge match with Le Bistro against rival pub Benny's Bar. Benny's has lost all previous 99 matches and, according to an ancient wager, if they lose the 100th match, Le Bisto can shut them down for good. So it's up to eccentric milkman Wullie (Beesley) to save the day. Predictable but filled with eccentric characters and a lot of heart.
