A documentary film about the silent concussion crisis in American sports.

Inspired by the evens from the book "Head Games" written by former Ivy League football player and WWE Wrestler Christopher Nowinski, the film contrasts evidence and science on head trauma from medical experts with first-hand accounts from athletes, coaches, and parents who tread the difficult balance between sports excellence and self-preservation.

Very interesting and watchable. Should be mandatory viewing for coaches, players and parents....both in children's sports and on up. Soccer, basketball, hockey, football, wrestling, boxing and the extra risks for females are all addressed. Leagues don't want to know about the problem due to the profound effects it would have on their sport, and so everyone ignores, denies or minimizes its impact. The movie also reiterates the definition of concussion is any sudden jarring, shaking of the brain.
