About Broken Trust: Athlete Abuse Exposed:
Broken Trust gives voice to the courageous women and men who have dared to speak up against abuse on all levels. Told through interviews with Olympic and national-class athletes, coaches and experts, Broken Trust looks at how and why abuse takes place and what needs to be done to stop it.
Beyond the attention-grabbing headlines, this documentary gives viewers a candid look at the secret world of sexual and emotional abuse experienced by athletes.
With unflinching honesty, Broken Trust shows how athletes are isolated and ostracized for speaking out, how parents are pressured to keep silent when confronted by predators in the guise of well-meaning coaches, and how athletes who dare to challenge the status quo are denied much-needed financial assistance.
