The incredible true story of Bert Trautmann, a German soldier and prisoner of war who, amid British post-war protest and prejudice, is hired as goalkeeper at Manchester City and so becomes a footballing icon. His signing outrages thousands of fans, many of them Jewish. But Bert receives support from an unexpected source: Rabbi Alexander Altmann, who fled the Nazis. Berts love for Margaret, an Englishwoman, carries him through, and he wins over even his harshest opponents by winning the 1956 FA Cup Final. But fate intervenes, and Bert and Margarets love and loyalty to each other are put to the ultimate test.
