Feature documentary, constructed from over 500 hours of never-before-seen footage charting the highs and lows in the career of one of the world's greatest football players, Diego Maradona.
Maradona’s football career is legendary. One of the greatest players of all time, he is the only footballer in history to set the world record transfer fee twice, first when he transferred to Barcelona for then a world record £5 million and later when he transferred to SSC Napoli for £6.9 million. At that time, the Naples team had never won a major tournament but their supporters were fanatical in their passion. The charismatic Argentine quickly led them to their first-ever title and he was celebrated as a god by one of Europe’s wildest cities.
