Summary In this inspiring tale based on true events, seventeen-year-old Ali Jahani is a newcomer to a small California town, where he stands out as different in an unwelcoming community. Living with his embittered uncle, the boy faces a mountain of adversity everywhere he turns. Rejected by everyone but determined to fit in, he joins the schools' floundering wrestling team. With a chance to change how others see him, Ali must step up and learn to be a hero.
