Intimate and nuanced, Wrestle captures the struggles faced both on and off the mat by a quartet of high school wrestlers from Huntsville, AL. Struggling with mental wellness, racial profiling (three of the four are young men of color), and teenage parenthood, these student athletes are mentored by their coach in an effort to not just qualify for state, but to use sports as a motivator against the societal pressures that might prevent them from graduating altogether.
