NEW YORK (AP) – The story of Pat Summitt's life debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival.

The Hall of Fame coach, who has early onset dementia, was part of the audience Sunday for a screening of the documentary “Pat XO.”

Summitt's son, Tyler, is the lead storyteller, spending time with his mother on a couch in their home going through a scrapbook of her life. The film starts from Summitt's earliest days and goes through her retirement from coaching last April.

The filmmakers gave cameras to those who know the Tennessee coach best. Former players Tamika Catchings, Chamique Holdsclaw, Michelle Marciniak and Candace Parker all told stories of their beloved mentor.

The show is part of ESPN Films' Nine for IX documentary series. It will be broadcast July 9.
