A middle-aged ex-college wrestler and biology teacher seeks a career in mixed-martial arts fighting to raise funds for his cash-strapped high school.

Scott Voss, an ex-wrestler and disillusioned middle-aged man meandering through a career as a biology teacher at the failing Wilkinson High School, is sobered by news of budget cutbacks that may jeopardize the employment of his friend and colleague, music teacher Marty. Determined to raise the necessary $48,000 required to prevent Wilkinson from implementing their cutbacks, Scott takes up a second job as an instructor in a citizenship class, ultimately turning to mixed-martial arts fighting as a source of quick cash after learning of the past of one of his students.
