Review: High school sophomore Danny excels at gymnastics but is bullied, like the rest of the gymnasts, by members of the football team. When a series of pranks between the football and gymnastics teams at a high school turns tragic, an unlikely ally comes forward in the form of a stuttering, damaged football star. This unflinching look at what happens when steroid use and bullying spin out of control shows how much courage it takes to be the one who says "Stop."
