In this true story of forgiveness, Bert Trautmann is a WWII German soldier and prisoner of war who winds up in the UK against a backdrop of British post-war protest and prejudice. When he wins the position of goalkeeper for Manchester City’s soccer team, his signing causes outrage among thousands of fans, many of them Jewish, but he then receives support from an unlikely advocate.
