Fritz has returned home to sell the house of his late father and finds that a priceless championship wrestling belt belonging to father has been pillaged. Fritz's uncle, Otto, cancels the sales until the belt is returned. A local street thug reveals the belt is now in the possession of the resident gang, The Pig Hunters. Fritz determines to get the belt back with reasoning. After a run-in with a corrupt cop and a vicious attack from the gang, Fritz tries but fails to reason with the gang leader and gets beat-up by the gang. While healing, Fritz realises he must rekindle a lost connection with his father's legacy and starts training with Otto's help.
