While in the b.g., DR. CYRIL WECHT, 60’s, in scrubs, steps
meet in the middle of the room--
Good morning, Cyril-
(checking the clipboard)
Rachel Green first, please.
Full or partial, Dr. Omalu?
Open-shut O.D.-suicide. Full room
today. We need to cycle them
I need your help, Rachel. We’re in
this together. Tell me what
happened to you.
And a hand on the body’s forehead, another over the heart. He
opens her eyes. Stares into them. Connection.
Oh here we go.

Danny, c’mon. Let him do this
thing. I hired him for a reason.
I need to talk to you. Come see me
in my office when you’re done-
Full autopsy. We’ll need the tissue
rolls a trolley over.

Synopsis: While conducting an autopsy on former NFL football player Mike Webster (David Morse), forensic pathologist Dr. Bennet Omalu (Will Smith) discovers neurological deterioration that is similar to Alzheimer's disease. Omalu names the disorder chronic traumatic encephalopathy and publishes his findings in a medical journal. As other athletes face the same diagnosis, the crusading doctor embarks on a mission to raise public awareness about the dangers of football-related head trauma.
