A look at the life and professional career of celebrated Argentine football genius Diego Armando Maradona, particularly focusing on his time at S.S.C. Napoli in the 1980s. Leading the way for Naples to win their first title, Maradona earned God-like status in the city, though such status also gave way to corruption and betrayal. Put together from 500 hours of previously-unseen footage, this documentary directed by Asif Kapadia explores the truth of Maradona’s 7 years in this Italian city.
