Diego Maradona’s career.
The Argentine inspired the Italian side and led them to the first Serie A title victory in their history. He also led his country to World Cup glory in 1986.
Off the field, however, Maradona’s life spiralled out of control. He was dogged by personal problems, drug issues and became involved with the underworld in Naples.
As Maradona’s former personal trainer says in the film, “For Diego, I would go to the end of the world… But with Maradona, I wouldn’t take a step.”
