Pat Clifton is well-known in the village of Greendale for, not only his prompt and polite deliveries having been in the postal business for many years, but for frequently taking it upon himself to help out his friends and neighbours in other areas of their lives. It appears, however, that delivering letters and parcels and saving his village isn't the only talent this postman has. When he discovers that a televised talent competition is holding auditions in the town, he is encouraged to try out. Much to everyone's surprise, his flawless singing voice renders the judges, led by Simon Cowbell, completely blown away and his rise to stardom begins. However, a singing career means that he won't have a lot of time to continue his postal duties, something that causes major chaos when his adversary replaces him with a series of frightening mail-robots hell bent on world domination.
