FOOTBALL WE TRUST is an insightful, eye-opening and moving documentary
feature film exploring in rich detail the remarkable story behind the
Polynesian Pipeline to the NFL (National Football League). A contemporary immigrant story, the film
transports viewers deep inside the tightly-knit and complex Polynesian
community in Salt Lake City, Utah, one of the chief sources for the modern
influx of Pacific Islander NFLers. With unprecedented access and shot over a
four-year time period, the film intimately portrays four young Polynesian men
striving to overcome gang violence and near poverty through the promise of
American football. Viewed as the salvation for their families, these young
players reveal the culture clash they experience as they transform out of
their adolescence and into the high stakes world of collegiate recruiting and
rigors of societal expectations.
