It is the summer of '66, and England is about to be consumed by World Cup Fever. For 12 year-old Bernie (Gregg Sulkin) though, the biggest day of his life is looming: his Bar Mitzvah, and the day he becomes a man. Bernie's family, however, are increasingly distracted by the threat of losing their business and their errant older son Alvie's (Ben Newton), bad behaviour, so much so that the scale of Bernie's Bar Mitzvah diminishes daily.
Worst of all the Cup Final is scheduled to take place on the same day. Despite Bernie's pleas, hi father Manny (Eddie Marsan) and mother Esther (Helena Bonham Carter) won't hear of moving the date, as 'England will never get through to the final'. But when England makes it through the qualifying rounds, Bernie's longed-for Bar Mitzvah looks set to be a complete disaster...
