The exciting and thought-provoking IN THE HANDS OF THE GODS is the true story of five young British freestyle footballers, who journey across the Americas to Argentina in the hope of meeting their hero, Diego Maradona. This coming-of-age road movie tells the story of a group of young men in pursuit of a lifelong dream.
For the boys - Woody, Sami, Jeremy, Danny, Mikey - Diego Maradona epitomises everything they love about football. Not only is he the creator of their art but also their inspiration during hard times in their lives. Along the way they found that it wasn't just Diego they were searching for, but something inside themselves
With no money for food, accommodation or travel, the freestylers hustle and busk their way from London to Buenos Aires using only their football skills and their charm, often being forced to go hungry and to sleep rough.
IN THE HANDS OF THE GODS is a voyage of adventure and self-discovery that will take these boys far from their homes, on a trip that will change their lives forever and was directed by brothers Gabe and Benjamin Turner.
