Constructed from over 500 hours of never-before-seen footage, this documentary centres on the career of celebrated football player Diego Maradona who played for SSC Napoli.

Having never won a major tournament, ailing football giant SSC Napoli had criminally underachieved. Their fanatical support was unequalled in both passion and size. None was more feared. But how they ached for success...

On 5th July 1984, Diego Maradona arrived in Naples for a world-record fee and for seven years all hell broke loose. The world’s most celebrated football genius and the most dysfunctional city in Europe were a perfect match for each other. This is the wild and unforgettable story of God-given talent, glory, despair and betrayal, of corruption and ultimately redemption.

From Asif Kapadia, Academy Award Nominated Director of Amy and Senna.
