About the movie

Starring David Kross, Freya Mavor and John Henshaw, “The Keeper” tells the true story of Bert Trautmann. A German soldier and prisoner of war is awarded the position of goalkeeper for Manchester City amidst post-war British protests and prejudice. His nomination causes indignation, but Bert receives the support of Rabbi Alexander Altmann and the love of Margaret Frair. However, fate will soon come between Bert and Margaret when their love and loyalty are tested.
