  • 5 stars "Viewers are taken along on the journey of a talented young man as he struggles with the pressures of sports performance and balancing it with school and life. It was fabulous, honest and very real. The telling of this story opened my mind to some realities that family members or friends of someone struggling with mental health need to consider."
