Bernd Trautmann is captured by the British during the Second World War and becomes a prisoner of war in a camp run by Sergeant Smythe. During a penalty-scoring challenge, Bernd’s talents as a goalkeeper pique the interest of Jack Friar, who manages a struggling local football club. He makes a deal with Sergeant Smythe to enlist Bernd as the club’s new goalkeeper to help push for league glory. At first, captain Bill Twist and team-mates are reluctant to welcome a German into their ranks.
