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 were more feared, but they longed for success.
On 5 July 1984, Diego Maradona arrived in Naples for a world-record fee, and for seven years all hell broke loose. It was a perfect match: the world’s most celebrated footballer, blessed on the field but cursed off it, and the most dysfunctional city in Europe.
The charismatic Argentine quickly led the club to their first-ever title. In the sprawling chaos of Naples, where the devil would have needed bodyguards, Maradona became bigger than God himself. But there was a price: Diego could do as he pleased while performing miracles on the pitch, but when the magic faded he became almost a prisoner of the city.
Made by the award-winning team behind SENNA and AMY, using over 500 hours of never-before-seen footage from Maradona’s personal archive, this is the wild and unforgettable story of God-given talent, glory, despair and betrayal, of corruption and ultimately redemption.Find your local cinema and book now
