A platoon of mismatched soldiers crosses the front-line to steal the bull that the enemy is to fight on the village's patron-saint's day. In addition to ruining the nationals' celebration, they want to butcher the animal to feed their famished troops. They get caught in the procession and must go through a series of funny and not-so-funny incidents before they can return to their side.
