Plot Summary

The danger of head trauma in sports has emerged with the discovery of Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) in athletes after death. This documentary includes Hall of Famers in the NFL, boxing, and mixed martial arts to get their take on the topic, and doctors who are experts in neurology. The film also shows the effects of traumatic brain injury on families, including the death of 27-year-old Tyler Sash, who won a Super Bowl with the New York Giants and was diagnosed with CTE post mortem. Concussed: The American Dream (2018) is the most current film on CTE with various narratives that take a closer look at the ramifications and possible solutions to the neurodegenerative disease.
