A high school wrestler loses his dad to cancer, then breaks down in the big match.

Filmmaker Steven Rico tells an autobiographical story about a high school wrestler coming to terms with the death of his father.

“Wrestling was a huge bonding experience for me and my dad,” he said. “He showed up to every single wrestling match of mine for seven straight years. He would wait for me to be done with practice and take me home every day.”

During Steven’s senior-year of high school, he tore the meniscus and MCL in his right knee, and his dad passed away. Everything collapsed, and he didn’t have his dad to lean on. That was the hardest time of his life.

The blur of emotions overwhelmed him, and he couldn’t recall the order of events — just that they all had happened.

So he wanted to make a film about his dad.

“I wanted to explore what happens when you lose your support system,” he added. “This movie is very personal to me. And I think that everybody can connect with it.”
