This Australian documentary captures the many misfortunes of a Melbourne football team, the suburban Footscray club, aka the Bulldogs, over full year. The Bulldogs are on a downward spiral, and filmmaker Michael Cordell follows the team through locker rooms, training areas, and playing fields as they suffer one defeat after another. One sequence includes a real-life "full monty," executed during a fund-raising event at a nightclub.
