What is the Ferrari movie about?

Ferrari is an adaptation from the book Enzo Ferrari: The Man and the Machine by Brock Yates. The official plot from Neon Pictures reads: "Ferrari is set during the summer of 1957. Behind the spectacle and danger of 1950’s Formula 1, ex-racer, Enzo Ferrari, is in crisis. Bankruptcy stalks the company he and his wife, Laura, built from nothing ten years earlier. Their tempestuous marriage struggles with the mourning for their one son. Ferrari struggles with the acknowledgement of another. His drivers’ lust to win pushes them out to the edge. He wagers all in a roll of the dice on one race, the treacherous 1,000-mile race across Italy, the iconic Mille Miglia."

Yes, Neon released the trailer for the Ferrari movie in August, ahead of its premiere at the Venice Film Festival, where it received a six-minute standing ovation.
