Career and life retrospective of England's current best known footballer. Football was only ever a stepping stone for David Beckham - he became an empire and a hero at a time when not only the game of football but the British nation needed someone to look up to. And look up they did - his haircuts swept like tsunami over the land within hours of his being seen with them. His style was emulated painstakingly and is to this day. Pulling down paycheques with a ridiculous amount of zeros on them, grabbing headlines on a minute to minute basis, and marrying a popstar who only increased his cachet, turned him from just David into 'Brand Beckham'. This documentary brings his amazing story right up to date to feature highlights from 2007, including being voted Britain's Greatest Ambassador, the closing of his final season with Real Madrid, moving to LA Galaxy for a record sum and being recalled to the England team for the key World Cup qualifying matches.
