Constructed from over 500 hours of never-before-seen footage, this documentary centers on the career of celebrated football player Diego Armando Maradona, who played for S.S.C. Napoli in the 1980s.

This intimate film culled from over 500 hours of archival footage shows us at least five sides of the Argentine-born Maradona, who was born to a poor family in a shanty town outside of Buenos Aires. We see the devoted son who supported his family since he was a teenager, who saw soccer as a way to give them a comfortable life. We see the astonishingly gifted athlete, combining speed, power, coordination, lightning reflexes, a strategic understanding of what it took to get the ball where it needed to be, and the ability to inspire his teammates to do their best. We see the poor kid with no education facing the scrutiny of constant, intense attention from fans, press, and competitors.
