Severed from his family, and placed on an ocean liner in the bay of Naples, Antonio Russo, just ten-years-old would embark on the journey of his life. As he steps onto New York soil without a word of English, and his oversized jacket pockets stuffed with salami and provolone cheese, Antonio recalls the promise from his mother that in America he would find family members to take care of him and the trees blossoming with gold. This young southern Italian boy is quickly hit with a large dose of reality. There are obstacles at every turn, and these obstacles would become the demons with which Antonio finds himself doing constant battle. He fights the demons as best he can but it's not until he comes to realize that he is good at something, that he has a natural instinct and ability in the sport of wrestling that he is able to rise above, and inspire others to do the same. As his story unfolds, and this Italian boy comes of age in America, it would be the sport of wrestling that ignites a passion and guides him to the realization of his true potential in life.
