Make Them Believe

A Russian wrestler enchanted by the United States plays the ultimate villain as the stars and stripes-clad character ‘American Hope” in Moscow’s underground wrestling ring. It’s a Kremlin-run world far from the pageantry of USA pay-per-view popularity where the red, white, and blue is the evil enemy and wrestlers slam into decrepit mats located in dingy basements.
