The Keeper (M)

German soldier Bernd Trautmann is taken captive by the British towards the end of WWII. During a POW football match, the goalkeeper is noticed by the manager of an amateur club. Forced upon the team, Trautmann soon surprises on and off the field. Prejudice subsides, friendships start to develop and Trautmann loses his heart not only to football, but also to his manager’s daughter, Margaret. Trautmann is overjoyed when he gets signed by Manchester City FC, but thousands take to the streets against the engagement of the ‘Nazi’. However, Trautmann does not give up and, finally, his path to acceptance begins.
