Eric Bishop, a Manchester postman, is going through a bad patch.

His two stepsons excel in little scams of all kinds, his daughter reproaches him for not being up to scratch, and his sentimental life is a desert.

Despite the joyful friendship and the good humor of his postal worker colleagues, who do everything to bring a smile back to his face, Eric is in a state of gloom.

One evening, he talks to the poster of his idol on the wall of his bedroom, which seems to look back at him with a playful eye. What would the greatest player of Manchester United do in his place?

Eric is convinced, King Cantona can help him get a grip on his life once more.
