At its core, “Stephen Florida” is a story of isolation. Whether it’s the geographic isolation inherent to the North Dakota location or the self-enforced isolation in which Stephen chooses to exist, the notion of loneliness drips from every page ... a crazy-quilt tapestry that captivates and mesmerizes.
-The Maine Edge

Synopsis

Foxcatcher meets The Art of Fielding, Stephen Florida follows a college wrestler in his senior season, when every practice, every match, is a step closer to greatness and a step further from sanity. Profane, manic, and tipping into the uncanny, it's a story of loneliness, obsession, and the drive to leave a mark.
