is a documentary film that depicts the life and death of Brazilian motor-racing champion, Ayrton Senna. In the film, both through home videos provided by the Senna family and from interviews with people that had known him, Senna is presented as sublime, spiritual, on occasion ruthless, as well as private, humble and fiercely patriotic, donating millions to his native Brazil and contemplating a life outside motor racing.The film begins with Senna's arrival into Formula One during the 1984 season, briefly covering his time at Toleman and Lotus before concentrating on his career at McLaren. The documentary concentrates on his time with the British team – namely his rise to global fame – becoming a World Champion, his rivalry with his team mate Alain Prost, and his political struggles with the then head of FISA Jean-Marie Balestre. The film covers the climax of the rivalry during the 1989 and 1990 seasons, when Senna and Prost were involved in controversial clashes which decided the drivers' title. Following a brief overview of the seasons that followed and the technological domination of the Williams cars, the documentary reaches its finale as Senna moves to the Grove-based team in 1994, before covering the events of that year's San Marino Grand Prix, which saw Senna lose his life. The film concludes with the Senna family and his close friends from Formula One mourning his loss at his funeral.
