American Wrestler: The Wizard

Synopsis: In this inspiring tale based on true events, 17-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 school's floundering wrestling team. With a chance to change how others see him, Ali must step up and learn to be a hero.

learner and I'll work very hard

and-and follow all the rules.

Uh, I'm actually surprisingly

strong for my size.

What position are you

interested in playing?

Um, red 42.

- The red 42?

- Yes.

Well, son, I'm sure

with enough time

and good coaching,

you'd make one hell of a red 42.

But, um..

You really wanna smash heads

with those fellas?

Maybe I try

a different sport.

Maybe a club.

Do you like dragons?

You're not making this

any easier on yourself.

People are just gonna

hate you more.


What the hell!

God. You pushed me,

you dick.

Oh, don't cry, alibaba.

It was an accident.

Hold this.

Come on, man.

Is there a problem here?

- No problem.

- No problem, sir.

Michael, are those

your books on the floor?

The books are mine.

These are for coloring.

Well, we have a comedian.

Both of you.

To my office, right now.

Towel has a trouble.

The next kid I hear

saying anything like that

'is suspended for a week. '

Michael, you know the way.

Thank you, Carla.

Son, take a seat.

'Do you want me

to call your father in'

'to have another meeting?'

'No, sir. '

'You give me

any more trouble'

'I'll have no choice

but to make that call. '

- 'do you understand me?'

- 'Yes, sir. '

'Now, get back to class'

'and see if you can find

a way to behave yourself. '

'Yes, principal, sir. '

'Alidad, you're up. '

you think you're special?

Excuse me?

Do you think you're special?

No, sir.

You're not.

Everyone's family came here

from somewhere else and they all

had to endure some trouble

from the people already here.

That's, that's the way

it works. That's the deal.

'And it's worked that way

for over 200 years. '

now, uh, if you can accept

that challenge

there's nothing

you can't achieve.

I believe that.

'I hear you're a smart kid. '
