The true story of Bert Trautmann, a former German POW, who, against a backdrop of British post-war protest and prejudice, becomes goalkeeper for Manchester City and a soccer icon. He falls in love, overcomes personal tragedy, and wins the hearts of a British public who initially refused to accept a German playing for their team. The Keeper raises tough questions about forgiveness and the power of sports to unite.
