Storyline

Leo Leone has been wrestling since he was seven years old. As the only son of wrestling coach (and ex-state champion) Edward Leone, Leo's dedication to the sport was tied up in his love for his father. Now Leo is seventeen. 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. Written by Anonymous

Nice to see a good quality wrestling film, from someone with knowledge of the sport.
18 February 2002 | by (Claremore, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

Loved the movie, Thanks for bringing back so many memories, and keeping wrestling the best sport in the world. Finally a wrestling movie from someone that actually knows the sport. This is a must see wrestling movie. All wrestlers can relate to the hard work, dedication, and sacrifices shown in the movie.
