Summer, 1954 and the Soviet Union is sending its prisoners of war home. Among them is the father of a quiet, football-loving 11-year-old, Matthias, who lives with his mother, sister and brother in a West-German mining town. The return of the boy's father Richard casts a shadow over the once-happy family: broken by his years in captivity, Richard has trouble adapting to life in post-war Germany and alienates his family through his severity. For Richard, football is pointless, and so is the World Cup that's about to be held in Bern, Switzerland. Matthias, however, longs to be there with his idol, Helmut Rahn, who has been chosen to play on the German team. Through his passion and his fighting spirit, Matthias rekindles a love of life in his dad's heart. And so, as the final match of the World Cup begins, a little miracle of love and generosity leaps across borders to help another miracle occur There are two events in German post-war history for which people still exactly remember where they were on this day: the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, and Germany's surprising victory at the football World Cup on 4 July 1954, better known as The Miracle of Bern. What characterized this historical hour was not simply the joy in the victory of a football team, but a kind of collective bliss, an encouraging corrective to the dark years of the Third Reich.
