Blood, sweat and tears flow when a domineering father and his underachieving son square off in an epic, and over the top, battle of wills. Meet Walter (Whitford) a man who refuses to step blithely into old age, but rather fights it with everything he’s got. The object of his rage? His son Ryan (Palmer), a young man with a long history of facing his father’s wrath. Ryan is a disappointment to his father — stuck forever, it would seem, on the cusp of manhood, yet unable to enter the promised land of adulthood.
The war between these two men is eternal: youth versus age, strength versus guile, old versus new. And to make matters worse, in Walter’s house, there’s only one way to solve a disagreement – through arm-wrestling! The two men remain locked in an epic battle of wills — and wrists – until beautiful blonde Sarah (McCook) comes between them, finally shattering this lifelong stalemate, once and for all.
