The widespread mental health issues among Olympic athletes and the lack of resources in place to help them sustain life beyond their sports are examined in this eye-opening documentary. Directed and executive produced by filmmaker Brett Rapkin--and narrated by the most decorated Olympian of all time, Michael Phelps--the film features profound interviews with top Olympic athletes who open up about the crippling depression rampant among competitors, particularly after the Games are over.
