The Keeper tells the incredible true story of Bert Trautmann (David Kross), a German soldier and prisoner of war who, against a backdrop of British post-war protest and prejudice, secures the position of Goalkeeper at Manchester City, and in doing so becomes a footballing icon.

Struggling for acceptance, Bert’s love for Englishwoman Margaret (Freya Mavor) carries him through, and he wins over even his harshest opponents when he plays on with a broken neck in the 1956 FA Cup Final. But fate will soon twist the knife for Bert and Margaret, when their love and loyalty to each other is put to the ultimate test.
