While imprisoned at the POW camp Bert meets Margaret (Freya Mavor, The Sense of an Ending) and her father Jack (John Henshaw, Stan & Ollie, Downton Abbey), the manager of the local football team. Impressed by Bert's exceptional talent as a goal-keeper, Jack recruits Bert to play for the local team. Despite hostility on and off the field, a love slowly blossoms between Margaret and Bert. To the outrage of Man City fans, Bert is signed by the club as their new star keeper. Bert’s difficult path to acceptance takes an incredible turn when he wins over thousands of supporters by taking the club to victory in the 1956 FA Cup Final and playing on despite breaking his neck.
From German director Marcus H. Rosenmüller, this is an extraordinary love story between a young English woman and a German PoW, who together overcome prejudice, outrage and tragedy.
