1972 was a turning point in Ilie Nastase’s career: he won his first US Open, while also reaching both Wimbledon and Davis Cup finals. Moving back and forth in time and featuring amazing archive footage and exclusive interviews with top athletes, the documentary explores Nastase’s highs and lows, the controversies that surrounded him and the enduring impact he has had on the world of tennis. Lovable, charming and generous, yet temperamental, arrogant and obscene, Mr. Nice’n’Nasty disrupted the old-fashioned etiquette of the sport in the 70s thus becoming its first rebel rock star.
