John McEnroe is one of the most explosive and compelling sporting icons of all time. Number One in the world in four consecutive years, John’s epic battles with Bjorn Borg helped define the golden era of tennis, yet huge controversy on and off the court betrayed an inner conflict. In this film we hear from John directly, as he journeys into memory to explore why a need for connection both drove him and nearly broke him. Featuring unseen archive footage from some of the biggest matches in tennis history – including the US Open and Wimbledon – as well as home video footage from John himself, McEnroe is a compassionate, heartfelt and human portrait of a force of nature.
