Those harrowing statistics show that life as a professional athlete is not always what it seems. Written and directed by former NFL wide receiver Matthew A. Cherry, THE LAST FALL tells the story of Kyle Bishop, a journeyman professional football player who retires broke at age 25 with no idea what to do next with his life.
