His family shattered by the tragedy that took his father, an unathletic teen from a blue-collar town decides to follow in the family tradition by becoming a high school wrestler in this inspirational family drama from WWE Studios. Mac Chetley was a state collegiate wrester with a promising future when he was killed in a car accident, and years later, his family still hasn't recovered from their loss. His son, Mike (John Cena), a once-promising high school wrestler, gave up grappling and ran away from home. No one has heard from Mike since, not even his 15-year-old brother, Cal (Devon Graye), or their mother, Sharon (Patricia Clarkson). Despite the fact that he lacks the physique that made his father and brother perfect candidates for wrestling, skinny Cal decides that it's time to strap on the headgear and see what he's got after getting a little encouragement from mysterious local Harry "Red" Newman (Danny Glover). And just when Cal starts to think that he's gotten in over his head, he receives some much-needed help from a most unlikely source.
