A movie drama about health, sports and honesty. Dr. Omalu came to the USA from Nigeria in order to work as a forensic pathologist. When several former NFL-players commit suicide, Dr. Omalu suspects that repeated concussions suffered during football games are to blame. As was to be expected, the NFL will do everything in its power to supress Dr. Omalu’s findings.

The German title of this work is ‘Erschütternde Wahrheit’. This movie is suited for interdisciplinary teaching with regard to Biology and Sports.
