 Description: A 3-time NCAA champ and No.1 WNBA draft pick known as the "female Michael Jordan," Chamique Holdsclaw was destined for a spectacular profession-al career until her long-suppressed battle with mental illness threatened to derail her life.

Filmmaker Rick Goldsmith intimately chronicles Holdsclaw's athletic accomplishments and dramatic personal setbacks, and her decision – despite public stigma – to become an outspoken champion for mental health and suicide prevention as she learns to live with Bipolar Disorder.

From the rough-edged courts of Queens, NY to the University of Tennessee and the WNBA, Holdsclaw stunned crowds with her artistry and athleticism on the court. She now inspires countless others with her mental health advocacy. With the emphasis on the life-long need for medication and treatment, the film tries to de-stigmatize mental health issues and the shame that too often keeps affected people from seeking help. Narrated by Glenn Close, Mind/Game is Holdclaw’s powerful story of courage, struggle, and redemp-tion.
