This is the extraordinary true story of German PoW Bert Trautmann, who made it to the top of post-war English football. While visiting a PoW camp near Manchester at the end of WWII, local team manager Jack Friar (John Henshaw) is very taken by one young prisoner’s prowess as a goal-keeper and arranges for him to play for his team. Jack’s daughter Margaret is initially appalled - he’s ‘the enemy’ after all - but Bert’s personality soon changes her opinion of him. While Margaret and Bert’s love slowly blossoms despite local hostility, Bert’s heroics in goal are getting noticed.
