ON THE MAT

Directed by Fredric Golding
FEATURE DOCUMENTARY 87 Minutes World Premiere
FILM GUIDE ON THE MAT
Achieving greatness in high school wrestling requires a level of devotion unmatched perhaps by any other sport. That greatness has become a yearly expectation at Lake Stevens High, winner of seven Washington state championships. With the pressure on following a disappointing fourth-place finish the previous year, the team will have to work harder than ever to reclaim the title. Among the wrestlers set to defend their school's legacy are Ryan, the team leader and most dedicated competitor; Eric, a sophomore who faces a potentially season-ending injury; and Steven, the team's star whose academic struggles and personality issues threaten to keep him from competing. Over the course of a turbulent season, all of them will face challenges that test their mental toughness and tenacity.

Narrated by Lake Stevens wrestling alum Chris Pratt (Moneyball), this riveting documentary follows the team from the training mats to the championship arena as they fight through adversity and set out to prove they've got the mind, body, and heart to claim the title once again.
