One Leg Kicking tells the story about a group of underdogs who form an amateur football team (The Durians) to play in a fictional local league organised by a farsighted sponsor. The prize for the winners: a trip to the 2002 World Cup Finals. Gurmit Singh plays (Tai Po) the common man’s hero, raising his two young children single-handedly after his wife passes away.


The rest of the “Durians” include Mark Lee (Handsome), an ex-convict with major anger management problems, Moe Alkaff (Vernon), a lounge singer struggling against his deadly nemesis, the karaoke machine, and Sharon Au (Kim), a tender but tough tomboy, while Siva Choy (Sammy Best) plays the inspirational coach who moulds them into a winning side.
