Drama / USA / 2008 / 109 min. Back in the late '80s, Randy "The Ram" Robinson (Mickey Rourke) was a headlining professional wrestler. However, a heart attack forces him into retirement. As his sense of identity starts to slip away, he begins to evaluate the state of his life — trying to reconnect with his daughter, and strikes up a blossoming romance with an aging stripper (Marisa Tomei). Yet all this cannot compare to the allure of the ring and passion for his art, which threatens to pull Randy "The Ram" back into his world of wrestling.
