Messi is a revealing portrait of soccer's most unassuming superstar with numerous exclusive testimonies to tell Messi's story, including an interview with the man himself. It charts his successful battle to overcome a career-threatening growth hormone deficiency, following which he has proceeded to win almost every award and trophy, including an unprecedented four FIFA Ballons d'Or, the Oscar of world soccer.
