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. Maradona was blessed on the field, and the charismatic Argentine quickly led Naples to their first-ever title, but when the magic faded he became almost a prisoner of the city. The third film from the Academy Award and BAFTA-winning team behind Senna and Amy, Diego Maradona is constructed from over 500 hours of never-before-seen personal archive – a wild and unforgettable story of talent, glory, corruption and ultimately redemption.
