Few have left a skid-mark on the planet like John McAfee, both the snake charmer, and the snake. McAfee’s wild, hysterical journey takes us from deity to demon, leaving dead bodies in his wake and a pile of mangled skeletons in his closet. A riches to riches story, the man never loses. He gets what he wants, when he wants it. Starting at the chaotic moment he was conceived to the prophetic moment he created his eponymous anti-virus software, we follow the rise , fall , truth and lies of a man through his own tinted lens. Guns, henchman, a gaggle of young girls and drugs kept him fuelled, but his con-artistry and sense of humour are what kept him alive. From the death of his nephew and the subsequent lawsuits, to his mysterious Escobar-esque life in Belize, the execution of his neighbour to his own death, we embark on an adventure of excess filled with drugs, fraud, sex, violence and murder. It’s a comedy.
