German paratrooper Bert Trautmann (David Kross) came to Britain as a POW during WWII. When he stays in the UK after the war to play for Manchester City’s football team, the public responds with hostility and outrage. Yet support comes from an unexpected direction when Manchester’s communal rabbi, who fled the Nazis, pens an open letter calling for reconciliation. Based on true events, this heartfelt tale of love, football, and forgiveness recounts Trautmann’s transition from figure of scorn to British sports icon.
