Story

The film is about a Swedish football team, Stenfors BK, who used to play in Allsvenskan once upon a time, but now plays in one of the lowest divisions. The humiliation is complete. But no more! If Stenfors BK won't start winning and climb up some divisions, the team will be disbanded.

So now, the struggle to survive starts. But it's tough, especially because Anders, the team captain, has trouble at home with his wife Åsa.

But one night, Anders' friend and team mate Kent, calls from England and says he has found their saviour. The man that Kent has found is the legendary, former Liverpool player Duncan Miller.

But when "Killer Miller" arrives at Stenfors, the team founds out that he is a little more former player than what they had expected...
