Inspired by Chris Nowinski's book Head Games, the film tells his remarkable story - how a former Ivy League football player and WWE Wrestler played an instrumental role in making concussions one of the most important public health issues of our time. The film also offers eye-opening insights and cutting-edge science on head trauma from the nation's leading medical experts, and features professional athletes who've suffered career ending concussions like NHL All-Star Keith Primeau and Olympic Soccer Gold Medalist Cindy Parlow. Most importantly, the film gives voice to amateur athletes and parents who struggle with the potential devastating and long-term effects of concussions. Ultimately, HEAD GAMES asks, "How much of you are you willing to lose for a game?"
