Set in the competitive world of high school wrestling and based on a true story, the story follows Leo Leone, who has been wrestling since he was 7 years old. As the only son of wrestling coach (and ex-state champion) Edward Leone, Leo’s dedication to the sport is tied up in his love for his father. Now Leo is 17. His life has been an endless cycle of training, sacrifice, and starving to make weight — a process that is becoming ever more difficult during adolescence. He’s tired of denying himself everything, and is feeling the lure of a world beyond the mat.

Living paycheck to paycheck, working a dead-end job in the mines while coaching for no money, Leo’s father Ed sees a wrestling scholarship as his son’s only chance to escape the treadmill of life in a small Pennsylvania town. But though his motives are good, Ed is pushing his son too hard. As the high school state championships near, the struggle between father and son escalates. The pressure leads Leo into excessive training and life-threatening behavior, and creates rivalries within the team.

With the help of his friends and the love of his girlfriend Shaw, Leo finds the strength to grow up and make serious choices between living his own life or letting his father live through him, following the path prescribed or following his dreams.
