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 organized 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.
