Synopsis


A very traditional German school in 1874 decides to employ a new English teacher
to ensure that some fresh ideas about culture and life can be imparted to the students.
The teacher turns out to be more radical than envisioned by the Principal,
as he teaches English culture by getting the students all to play football.
Yet despite the excitement experienced by the students, the parents and local
community are not so impressed.
