This hilarious, touching documentary follows the efforts of a 48-year-old builder from a small town in Bulgaria to change his name to Manchester United. Living with his mother and his cat Beckham, the thing that means most to Marin Zdravkov Levidzhov is his love for an English football club. Despairing when Manchester United were losing the Champions League final in 1999, he declared that if they won, he'd take on their name. When they did the near-impossible, he vowed to keep his promise, beginning a ten-year battle through the court and churches, and takes him to Old Trafford to meet his hero, striker Dimitar Berbatov.
