Ailing football giant SSC Napoli had never won a major Tournament. Their fanatical support was unequalled in both passion and size. None was more feared. But how they ached for success... 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 but cursed off it; the charismatic Argentine, quickly led Naples to their first-ever title. It was the stuff of dreams. But there was a price... Diego could do as he pleased whilst performing miracles on the pitch, but when the magic faded he became almost a prisoner of the city.

In a city where the devil would have needed bodyguards, Maradona became bigger than God himself.
This is the wild and unforgettable story of God-given talent, glory, despair and betrayal, of corruption and ultimately redemption.

The documentary is constructed from over 500 hours of never-before-seen footage from Maradona's personal archive.
