Post-film Skype Q&A with co-director Trish Dalton.

From Executive Producer LeBron James comes an examination of the complex rules of amateur athletics in America and how they affect uncompensated athletes and their families. Student Athlete unveils the exploitative world of high-revenue college sports through the stories of four young men at different stages of their athletic careers, as well as a coach-turned-advocate and a whistle-blowing shoe rep who exposes the money trail.
