The story of Ayrton Senna, perhaps the greatest racing car driver who ever lived, is an epic tale that twists at every turn.

In the mid 1980's, Senna, a young gifted driver, exploded onto Formula One racing. Facing titanic struggles, he dazzled the Formula One circuit with his flamboyant driving style and dashing good-looks, conquered the sport becoming a global icon, idolized in his home country, Brazil. Told solely through archive footage, Kapadia's documentary is a thrill ride worthy of its daring.
