Inspiring story about Chamique Holdsclaw, women's basketball phenom who has been at the pinnacle of success and the depths of depression, as told through the lens of Rick Goldsmith, an independent filmmaker from Berkeley, Calif. Rick is a 2013-2014 Rosalynn Carter Fellow for Mental Health Journalism.
- "Holdsclaw’s story was not just about demons, but about life’s challenges, how we approach them, and, ultimately, the human spirit. What drives an athlete to be the best? Arguably, others had Holdsclaw’s talent, but only she won championships seven years in a row. How did she get the most of her talent? Why was it she who got derailed by depression? What of her drive for perfection and for winning? Were there attributes that both contributed to her success and led to her downfall? And will the characteristics that made her a champion lead ultimately to her success in recovery?"
