Losing LeBron ​is a feature-length documentary that chronicles the impact of NBA superstar LeBron James’s decision to leave the city of Cleveland and join the Miami Heat. Using this historic decision as a lens, the film explores the complicated relationship many Cleveland residents have with their hometown, as it takes an intimate look at several families and individuals over the course of a year to deeply examine how LeBron James served as a symbolic representation of hope for a city struggling to redefine its economy and its national image.
