The son of a pioneer in developing strength and conditioning techniques, Todd Marinovich was literally molded from the cradle for athletic stardom, and his high school exploits had college scouts swarming. Yet, the pressures of competition fostered drug problems that compromised his collegiate career, and helped wash him out of the NFL within two years of his first-round selection. This ESPN Films effort takes an uncompromising look at his rise and fall, as well as his complex parental relationship. 88 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English; featurette; deleted scenes.
