PLAY IT FORWARD is a rousing portrait of All-American NFL tight end Tony Gonzalez and his older brother Chris. Over the course of a year – as he approached the end of career – future Hall-of-Famer Tony puts his heart on the line to achieve the one dream that has always eluded him: Super Bowl glory. At the same time, Chris, whose own football aspirations were thwarted by an injury, works to realize his very different ambition of becoming a professional firefighter. Equally full of heart and tension, PLAY IT FORWARD is an uplifting look at these two brothers, driven both on and off the field. The film, which was screened as the Opening Gala film of the 2015 Tribeca/ESPN Sports Film Festival earlier this year, is written and directed by Oscar® winner Andrea Nevins. The documentary was executive produced by Pro Football Hall of Famer, host and analyst Michael Strahan and Constance Schwartz, and produced by Cristan Reilly, for SMAC Entertainment and Rare Bird Films.
