Budak Lapok is an ode to the comedic films of P. Ramlee, Aziz Sattar and S. Shamsuddin. The film stars three young kids, Ramlee, Ajis and Sudin, who befriend each other in a small village by the name of Kampong Sebatang Pinang. The three lead their school to a famous football game against the defending champion of Kampong Semerah Padi School led by naughty Sarip Dol, who is assisted by Megat Komeng and Brahim. Meanwhile, in the run-up to the game, the three boys are also planning to win the hearts of three young girls – Nani, Salmah and Eton – by participating in the inter-school drama competition even though both Ajis and Sudin are fearful of appearing on stage. Things become complicated when both the drama competition and the soccer match fall on the same date. The three need to come out with a plan to be able to be at two places at the same time. The excitement builds as the date comes close.
