This feel-good drama recreates the incredible true story of Bert Trautmann, a German soldier and POW who, against a backdrop of British post-WWII protest and prejudice, secures the position of goalkeeper at Manchester City, and in doing so becomes a football icon. His signing causes outrage to thousands of fans, many of them Jewish. But Bert receives support from an unexpected direction: Rabbi Alexander Altmann, who fled the Nazis.
