In football, most attention goes to scoring goals - to the attackers
and the strikers. This film focuses on the individuals in the goal –

inevitable counter goal. Throughout the course of a season, Keeper
shows us that as soon as we accept that defence is fallible, we can
be vulnerable and make real contact with the world around us.
