“The director masterfully assembles roughly four years of footage, much of it shot by Gleason himself, and the result is painfully raw at times but undeniably rewarding. ”~Variety

Aroview: Sundance hit documentary exploring the world of football hero Steve Gleason, whose career as defensive back in The New Orleans Saints was tragically interrupted by the diagnosis of a rare and incurable autoimmune disease called ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease). As Gleason learns to adapt to his declining physical health, he discovers that his wife is pregnant with their son, both of whom feature prominently.
