In a billion dollar industry, what does it really mean to be a “student athlete”? Produced by HBO Sports in collaboration with LeBron James, Maverick Carter and Steve Stoute, this documentary captures the harsh reality of playing in the NCAA, unveiling the league’s policies that leave many athletes struggling to get by. Directed by Oscar(R) winner Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy and Trish Dalton, this hard-hitting, often-poignant expose unveils the exploitive world of high-revenue college sports through the compelling stories of four young men at different stages in their athletic careers, as well as two others: a coach-turned-advocate for student athletes and an anonymous whistle-blowing shoe rep.
