Based on the true story of the teacher and football pioneer Konrad Koch, “LESSONS OF A DREAM” relates the story of the beginnings of football in Germany, and of a school class that develops into a real team when they are infected with their new teacher’s football fever. Travelling back in time, the story depicts an era in which schools were still places where good breeding and order reigned and football itself was defined as an “English disease” by the media.
