Lance Armstrong's rise was among the most dramatic, inspirational and popular stories in sports history. His fall was remarkably absolute.

Years later, his story remains as compelling as ever, and as for the man himself - he's not done talking.

From acclaimed director Marina Zenovich, LANCE is a chronicle of one of the most inspirational - and then infamous - athletes of all time.

Based around extensive interviews and conversations with Lance Armstrong, the two-part, four-hour film tells the story of the cyclist's rise out of Texas as a young superstar cyclist.

It continues with his harrowing battle with testicular cancer; his recovery and emergence as a global icon with his seven consecutive Tour de France titles; and then his massive fall after he was exposed in one of the largest doping scandals in history.

Armstrong, along with a collection of family, teammates, friends, rivals and journalists, all reflect on his story, creating a character study and capturing a unique chapter of sports history.

In the end, the film insists that the audience make its own interpretations about the many different sides of a complex saga.
