Long Bay resident Donald Foley, a life long curler and more recent curling coach, has just passed away. He has requested that his cremated ashes be bored into a specific curling stone he has just had retrieved from the bottom of Long Bay. His will also has a non-binding codicil to reunite the last team he coached to curl in the Golden Broom Bonspiel in town, a Long Bay team which has never won and that team which was the closest ever to doing so. Donald wants that specific stone in which he is buried to be delivered as the final shot to sit on the button for the win for the Long Bay team. Beyond the four team members not having curled at all since their last bonspiel ten years ago, they each have issues in their lives which may make coming together as a team and winning, and curling in its entirety difficult or a non-priority.

During many of the games some houses were left with up to 5 rocks in the house with no opposing rocks. The scores should have been much higher in all the games, most notably in the final game.

I actually thought this movie was going to go somewhere. It showed promise; especially with the early part of the movie setting up the relationships among the various friends. But, it descended down into the oblivion that marks many, many mediocre movies using screwball comedy sketches.
