Based on the true story of one Nigerian doctor, a soulful US immigrant, who discovered CTE (chronic traumatic encephalopathy) in football players. He postulated that the thousands of head-on collisions endured in a pro NFL football career were to blame and published his findings in a medical journal that attracted instant pushback from NFL officials. This is the story of the uphill battle he faced in bringing the information to the public.
