Synopsis

Raised by professional wrestling parents, Paige (Florence Pugh) and her brother Zak (Jack Lowden) have always wanted to follow in their footsteps and get a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to do just that when they audition for the WWE. But when Paige alone earns a spot in the next round, she must battle not just opponents, but sibling rivalry, homesickness and loneliness and prove herself a worthy champion.
