Pic’s based on the life of UFC fighter Matt Hamill as he becomes the first deaf wrestler to win a national collegiate championship. Raised among those with the ability to hear, he finds himself no less an outsider amidst the deaf community but turns what could be a disability into an asset.

Oren Kaplan directed and Joseph McKelheer and Eben Kostbar produced and penned the script.
