Max Taylor was on a clear path to a dream career in the National Hockey League. For years he climbed his way through the minor hockey ranks and was finally getting his shot. His dream ended in one game where he sustained two concussions and was stretchered off the ice on oxygen. After this, Max could not function for 12 months, stuck in a dark room with recurring headaches, isolated from the sport he loved. A Dark Room is a documentary told through the story of Max Taylor. Through Max, we see an uncompromising, gritty, and science-based look at how hockey culture, and the stigma that it perpetuates, is contributing to a concussion and mental health epidemic.
