In the Cleveland suburb of Lakewood, Ohio, there are two young men at two different high schools with the same goal: to be a state wrestling champion. Matt Curley attends the public school. Though he has fewer resources and comes from a broken home, Matt trains relentlessly while enduring starvation to better his chances at earning his school a championship.
Lance Palmer leads the private school team that's a national powerhouse. He's traveled the nation since he was 9 to find the best competition. At home he wrestles 600-lb. bears to hone his skills.
Pinned is the wild, true-life David and Goliath story of two young men fighting for a dream in a world where pain is practiced and becoming a champion is worth any price.
