The play centers on a a church hall where a rummage sale is about to take place. At first it is just that but in their search through the clothing a lottery ticket is discovered and it appears to be the "Big Winner". There then ensues arguments and discussions on who has a claim to it, the person that found it, the person whose trouser pocket it was found in or should it be handed in a lost property? During these arguments and discussions friendships are tested and in some cases destroyed. It seems the only way this can end is badly.
