Bernie Rubens is a nerdy 12-year-old preparing for his Bar Mitzvah, which he wants to be a huge affair.
However, his parents, Manny and Esther, have accidentally scheduled it for the day of the 1966 World Cup final, so if England makes it, no one is expected to show for Bernie's big day.
In the meantime, Manny, a depressed man unable to find any kind of happiness in his life, thinks the local grocery he runs with his slick brother, Jimmy, can do battle with the supermarket conglomerate that has moved in next door.
Once again, sad-sack Manny has made the wrong choice, leaving him with limited funds, unable to give Bernie the party he wants so badly.
As England starts winning, Bernie begins rooting for his home team to lose; meanwhile.
