Love can begin in the most unlikely of places, including a "mom and pop shop" wrestling league. John and Bret, two twenty-something athletes who separately endured abuse in their pasts, do what they know—they beat up themselves and each other—until one hero-seeking boy turns their lives around with the question, "Why do you hurt each other?"
John’s heartache begins with a bad relationship when he’s seventeen, and Bret, having had enough with dating in the Pacific Northwest, tries his luck here with this Mid-Atlantic league.
Tender moments unfold for John and Bret. The rookies are also brought together by a ragtag team of oddball wrestlers who, lonely themselves, know what all boys know: deep down, we all just want to be held.
