Cracks begin to show in the perfect façade of a young athlete’s life, in this palpable and unexpected drama from Trey Edward Shults (It Comes at Night, Krisha). The future is bright for Tyler (Kelvin Harrison Jr.), who seems to have everything he needs: a wealthy family to support him, a spot on the high-school wrestling team, and a girlfriend (Alexa Demie) he's head over heels in love with. Committed to greatness and under intense scrutiny from his father (Sterling K. Brown), Tyler spends his mornings and nights training. But when pushed to the limit, cracks in the perfect façade of Tyler's existence start to show, and the stage is set for a true American tragedy.

“A powerful artistic undertow that sucks viewers in and spits them out gasping.” - Boston Globe

“The emotional typhoon unleashed in this family drama is the work of Trey Edward Shults, a major young filmmaker who draws astounding performances from Kelvin Harrison, Jr., Sterling K. Brown and an unforgettable Taylor Russell.” - Rolling Stone
