Pitch video


Terry plays a masked villain in the wrestling world, however, wants to be recognized as a good guy, hearing the crowd chant his name. When he asks if he can take off the mask, change his persona and play a good wrestler, the promoter declines his request. It is up to Terry to prove to himself that he is more than what the promoter and the audience see him as. From the acrobatics and theatrics in the ring, to the smell of the dingy gyms, the film will pay homage to the world of amateur and Mexican wrestling, while telling an underdog’s rags to (not quite) riches tale about the human spirit, overcoming obstacles and discovering who you really are.
