Synopsis:
While Lieutenant Goodbody (Michael Crawford) lacks in experience, he's desperately trying to make up for in enthusiasm. And when he's ordered to build a cricket playing field in the wastelands of North Africa - 100 miles behind enemy lines - he's determined to succeed... even if it kills most of his men. Abandoned by his superiors, betrayed by his inferiors and finally captured by Nazis, it may take more than his unrelenting optimism to win the day... like some hilariously good luck!
