    • Synopsis
    • In football, most attention goes to scoring goals - to the attackers and the strikers. This film focuses on the individuals in the goal – the keepers. It is a nuanced and at times humorous psychological search for the motivation and wavering character traits of these
      solitary troopers. By following five peculiar and very different football keepers, this documentary lets the audience in on the excitement that is waiting alone (in a far too big goal) for the 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.
