A modern day dairy-tale with a lotto heart!  The most magical thing about the lottery is pondering what you'd do if you won...At Schnaybel's Famous Cheese, the lotto is just the ticket to help the workers take their minds off how things are in Sheboygan. Their beloved founder has passed away and there are rumors the factory may shut down. With typical Wisconsin good humor, the workers carry on while keeping their fingers crossed that something better will come their way...A touching and joyful Wisconsin musical gouda luck fable
