Did you know that over 700,000 Australians (Australian Bureau of Statistics) suffer from brain injury, that 3 out of every 4 of them are aged under 65 and two out of three of these acquired their brain injury before they turned 25? Acquired Brain Injury is damage caused to the brain which has occurred after birth. This can be caused by an accident or trauma, stroke, brain infection, alcohol or other drugs or by diseases of the brain such as Parkinson's.

Concussion is a dramatic thriller focussed on "how American football players suffer from major head injuries and life-long debilitating problems as a result of repeated concussions and efforts by the National Football League to deny it." It is a true David and Goliath story of how one man first discovered Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) and fought for the truth to be known.
