Powerful drama based on actual events. An Olympic wrestler's oddball benefactor takes a disruptive interest in his team and the man's brother.
Olympic wrestler Mark is flattered by multimillionaire John du Pont's invitation to build and lead a squad to compete in the 1988 Games in Seoul. However, eccentric John's awkward attempts at hands-on involvement and desire to draw in Mark's more famous brother Dave steer the trio towards a tragic outcome.
