Ken is a little boy with protruding ears who would like to fly. When his uncle gives him a picture of a goalkeeper of Manchester United, he decides to become a goalie as well. Later, Ken recognises the keeper as Alex Stepney. He contacts him. Alex advises him to go to Edwin van der Sar, the current Man United keeper. And then a miracle happens. Ken’s entertaining adventure is told in voice-over and shot in the grainy, bleached colours of an amateur cine film.
