Synopsis

A father, who has trained his son all his life to play football, pauses when his son turns twelve and is about to play tackle football. Because of all the information out about the health and safety of the game, journalist Sean Pamphilon went out on a mission to decide when it was appropriate to let his son play the game he's loved all his life. When Pamphilon wants an answer he doesn't just Google it, he gets on a plane or in his car and goes after it. What results is a two-year search, where Pamphilon travels the country taking a thought provoking look at America's true National Pastime.
