Ken Loach directs this upbeat comedy set in Manchester, about a football-mad postman who receives life coaching from his idol, the enigmatic French footballing legend, Eric Cantona. On a downward spiral and facing an uncertain future, postman Eric Bishop (Steve Evets) is looking for a way out of his torment. Stealing a joint from his teenage son, he takes a drag and starts recounting his woes to a poster of the Gallic legend in his bedroom. As if by magic (or a puff of smoke!), the famously philosophical one miraculously appears, spouting forth his wisdom to his number one fan, who he then proceeds to take on a journey of blissful self-discovery.
