Nigerian immigrant Dr. Bennet Omalu was a brilliant pathologist working in Pennsylvania, assigned to perform the autopsy on a high-profile American footballer in 2002. He discovered the player had severe brain damage and died as a result of repeated blows to the head sustained on the field. His findings initially dismissed by the National Football League (NFL), Omalu discovers several similar cases stretching back over years, setting in motion a David vs. Goliath story as he fights for the truth to emerge against the wishes of one of the most powerful sporting institutions in the world. Based on a true story, this drama tackles the contentious issue of safety in sports head on, pitting scientific fact against corporate self-interest and America’s national sport to stirring effect.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
