An unscrupulous attorney-cum-wrestling coach's shady dealings threaten to fall through when his life is shaken up by the arrival of a strange character.

Mike Flaherty, an attorney in small-town New Jersey, maintains a second career as a high-school wrestling coach as he constantly struggles to keep his fledgling practice afloat. In the course of persuading dementia-affected client Leo Poplar to appoint him as his guardian and grant him with a $1,500 monthly stipend as a result, Mike learns of the existence of Leo's troubled grandson and talented wrestler Kyle, attempting to use the young man as part of a "win-win" scheme to bring glory to his wrestling squad that is ultimately interrupted by the arrival of drug-addicted mother Cindy.
