Lincoln Hawk is a struggling trucker who arm wrestles on the side to make extra cash while trying to rebuild his life. Hawk’s estranged wife Christina, who is suffering from heart disease, asks that Hawk pick up their young son Michael from military school so that the two of them can get to know each other; Hawk had left them ten years earlier. Michael’s controlling grandfather Jason Cutler, a wealthy man who hates Hawk and disapproved of his daughter’s relationship with him, believes that Hawk has no right to be in his grandson’s life. Michael is very distrusting and bitter towards Hawk initially and treats him with contempt at every turn.

Over the course of a trip from Colorado to California, Michael comes to trust Hawk, especially after Hawk rescues him from kidnappers (who were actually goons hired by Cutler to retrieve Mike). Hawk and Mike also bond when Hawk teaches him to arm wrestle and drive the truck. However, when they arrive at the hospital, Hawk is despondent to learn that Christina died from complications during surgery.
