What would the world be like if men greeted each other with wrestling holds? Did you ever fear getting an erection while wrestling? Just a few of the many frank questions award-winning filmmaker, Victor Rook, asks when trying to find out why wrestling has become so underappreciated in America.
Pro, amateur, and submission wrestling are examined in-depth, as well as wrestling homophobia and homoeroticism. The documentary includes a look at the world of underground wrestling where adult men attend wrestling retreats and use the internet to find other men to wrestle.
