In 1984, Nike is struggling to compete with Adidas in the basketball shoe market. Enter Sonny Vaccaro, a maverick marketing executive, who sets his sights on a young, unproven college player named Michael Jordan. Vaccaro believes Jordan has the potential to be a game-changer, not just on the court, but in the world of sneakers. He convinces Nike to take a gamble on Jordan, and together they create the Air Jordan brand, forever changing the landscape of sports and fashion.
