Young teacher Konrad Koch (Daniel Brühl) is hired to teach English at a strictly-run German school for boys in 1874. In his very first class, he notices that everything that the boys know about England is common prejudice handed down for generations. In order to stir up some enthusiasm for the foreign language, Oxford graduate Koch resorts to unusual means, introducing his students to a curious sport that comes from Britain: football. Unfortunately, Koch's unconventional ways soon make him many enemies: influential parents; local dignitaries; and above all his colleagues, who only believe in Prussian drills and discipline. They all want to get rid of Koch at any price until his students take matters into their own hands.
