Jon Neville is the epitome of millions of lottery players. He is Mister Ordinary with an unshakeable belief that he will ultimately win a large jackpot. His belief becomes reality but the feeling of ecstasy from winning turns to horror as he is mugged, the ticket is lost and he is hospitalised. A Dutch drug runner, a German professional footballer, an odious publicist and Neville''''''''s journalist son, are crucially involved in the recovery of the lost ticket. The story is a wry commentary on today''''''''s optimistic society where winning is all-consuming and the weekly striving for riches beyond our wildest dreams is enduring.180 DAYS is a thrilling journey; intimate, tragic and magical."
