What brings a man mega success? Is it talent or personality? Is it luck to be born in the right time and the right place? Or is it luck to have the right people around you?
What does mega success to a man? He becomes a superstar.
But what happens when one day he can no longer ignore that time is no longer on his side, that journalists are no longer interested in his achievements but in his downfall, that his bodyguards do no longer protect him but made the house into a prison? What happens when his doctor has become his drug dealer?
Can a superstar become a man again? No, it is too late. Far too late!
