The Yellowstone actor stars as a former multi-state champion wrestler, John Wright, who makes it all the way to the Olympics, however, a scandal costs him the title. Fast forward twenty years, Wright returns back to his hometown to try to save his mother’s house from foreclosure after her death. However, he is greeted with an unfriendly welcome due to his past.

Wright decides to stick with what he knows and returns to the wrestling mat to train young men in high school in the sport. This is where he meets Michael Miller (Sean Scully). Miller comes from a troubled family yet shows the potential to make it far in the sport. “Can John become the leader, the team, and Michael needs, or will he lose himself to the dark demons of his past?”

Other stars that are featured in the film include Hallie Todd from Lizzie McGuire, Randall Batinkoff, who played the agent in X-Men: First Class, and Peter Onorati, who plays This is Us‘ Stanley Pearson. Annika Marks from The Fosters and Bob McCracken on Sons of Anarchy are also in the movie.
