Max Taylor was on a clear path to a dream career in the National Hockey League. For years he climbed his way through the minor hockey ranks and was finally getting his shot. His dream ended in one game where he sustained two concussions and was removed from the ice on a stretcher. After this, Max could not function for 12 months. He was stuck in a dark room with recurring headaches and isolated from the sport he loved. Through Max's story, the viewer gets an uncompromising, gritty, and science-based look at how hockey culture, and the stigma that it perpetuates, is contributing to a concussion and mental health epidemic. Please note that this title contains potentially offensive language and includes discussions about suicide.
