In 1982, Steve Jobs was on top of the world, and his company – Apple – was the most important in Silicon Valley. But as the war for personal computing ignites, Steve suffers a sudden fall from grace and is forced to face his wild bipolarity, his crippling fear of abandonment, and the family he pretended he didn’t have, in order to return from the bottom and leave the legacy he always dreamed of.
