Synopsis

The carnival world of wrestling is explored through the portraits of three men who are at the end points of their dangerous and unpredictable careers: Terry Funk, a reknowned Texas champ who is 53 and has been wrestling for 32 years, Jake "the Snake" Roberts, a wrestler on the skids who attributes his downfall to a crack cocaine addiction and a horrible childhood; and Mick Foley, a devoted father and husband who thinks it would be wise to quit for the sake of his family, but will have trouble letting go.
