Lance Armstrong’s story was legend – he’d beaten cancer and went on to win seven Tour de France titles. This film follows the legendary cyclist Armstrong for four years, starting from 2009, to chronicle his return from retirement and quest to win an eighth title.
In 2012, filmmaker Alex Gibney was also there when Armstrong admitted to doping, following a U.S. federal criminal investigation. Interviewees include former teammates and doctors, many of whom have never before spoken to the media about Armstrong’s bombshell.
