Billy has won a Billion Euro on the lottery. Determined to stay anonymous, he pays a stranger to claim they won the money. Billy and this stranger cross paths several times with hilarious consequences. Billy just wants to anonymously help a few people and thank a few people. Good deeds should be done with intention not for attention.

When Billy’s good deeds inspire others to copy them, nosey reporter Sandra Birch is determined to find out who is responsible. The only clue she has is that the person doing good deeds wears a Mackintosh overcoat. When the lottery ruse is exposed, a photograph emerges of a man with a Mackintosh overcoat, leaving lottery head office on the day the jackpot was claimed. Sandra is getting closer to revealing Billy's identity. Has he been right under her nose the whole time?

The Man With The Mackintosh Overcoat is a fun, uplifting and inspiring story. It will make you laugh, it will make you cry, you might even cry laughing.
