Director Rebecca Carpenter's father, Lewis Carpenter, was a World Championship running back for the Detroit Lions and Vince Lombardi's Green Bay Packers. When he dies, her family receives a surprise request from Boston University's brain bank - with shocking results. Lew becomes the 18th NFL player diagnosed postmortem with Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE), a degenerative neurocognitive disorder that can cause episodes of rage, social withdrawal, and other unusual behaviors. In disbelief, Carpenter finds herself at ground zero of an unfolding public health controversy and embarks on a three-year odyssey across America to explore the far-reaching implications of this "new" disease.

Incredible I went to the cinemas to see this, and as a huge Chris Borland fan I found no disappointment. Mike Ditka are also favourite actor of mine and bringing them all together made me most happy. I loved the plot and how it is so compelling and intriguing.

All of the actors are fantastic too, Mike Ditka is the stand out here. Yes, this is probably due to the fact he is the star and given all of the emotional weight
