The incredible true story of Bert Trautmann, the German soldier and prisoner of war who, against a backdrop of British post-war prejudice, became goalkeeper for Manchester City. 1944: German paratrooper Trautmann (David Kross) is captured and transferred to a Lancashire POW camp. Spotted keeping goal while playing footie with other POWs, he’s drafted into the local team; controversially, as Britain and Germany are still at war. Following Trautmann through his astonishing footballing career and his sweet romance with wife Margaret (Freya Mayor), The Keeper is a heartfelt tribute to an icon of the game and a pioneer of post-war Anglo-German relations.
