The true story of professional video gaming. Almost everyone in the world has played a video game, but some kids do it for a living. FRAG shed light on the struggles that kids face while trying to break into and maintain success in pro gaming. At a young age, they are faced with making adult decisions that impact the rest of their lives. Below the surface of a simple game is an underbelly of corruption, money, drugs, and even death. Exploited, abused, and abandoned, most gamers fail to reach the top, but like all sports, there are heroes, FRAG pulls the curtain back on the biggest sport industry in the world..one that you know nothing about.

This documentary wants to shine a light on the, for most people unknown, pro gaming society. Those exceptionally talented teenagers struggle to get acceptance by their parents and are struggling to give up their education to go pro.
I am a bit of a gamer myself. I like to play from time to time. So I'm always interested in documentaries about pro gaming. I know it is damn hard, and that you'll have to be amazingly good at it to become a pro. This documentary disappointed me. It doesn't go deep. It's pretty all round and doesn't focus on a subject. Like the documentary "The King of Kong" for example focused only on two players fighting each other for the world record. Gaming is pretty big. Lots of different things you can focus on. They start general then narrow it down to professional gaming. But they fail to get specific. If they only had focused on a couple of gamers and tell more about their struggle it would be way more interesting and telling a lot more about pro gaming.
Maybe I am prejudiced, but they failed to deliver.
