The film tells, in the manner of Emir Kusturica, the life of Diego Armando Maradona that the Serbian-Bosnian director has related to some characters of his own films. The story develops itself in places where Maradona lived, revisited by the former Argentine footballer together with the director: Buenos Aires, Naples and Cuba. It tells about the humble origins of the great Argentine footballer, his debut in the Argentinos Juniors, his rapid football career, with victories (the Scudetto with Napoli, the World Cup won with the Argentine national team) but also with the dramatic moments of his life, such as the drug positivity at the 1994 World Cup, the consequent decline and the slow ascent. Kusturica lets Maradona express his thoughts on drugs, family, football today and against the North American neoliberal system.
