Plot & Details

Based on the life of the UFC fighter, Matt Hamill, 'The Hammer' is a coming of age drama about the first deaf wrestler's journey to win a National Collegiate Championship. Raised among those with the ability to hear, Matt finds himself no less an outsider amidst the Deaf community. But through sheer determination, he turns what could be a disability into an asset and in the process serves as an inspiration for both those who can hear and those who cannot.
