Underdogs is, in essence, a coming of age story. It centers around a young man, just out of college, who is trying to carve his own niche in the world. Whether it be his love life, or his career, his choices never seem to work out for him. But, what if it did start working for him? Would he be happy if he actually got everything he wanted?

Frank and Jennie
If you could do one good thing in your life, what would it be? And why would you do it? Frank thinks he knows why and what it would be. Jennie is pretty sure that she doesn’t really know what she wants. Can love overcome all?

Tossed around the idea of writing a book about small independent wrestling federations across Canada. Looking at why the wrestlers do what they do and why. Opportunity for a good non-fiction expose on the life of working-class weekend warriors.
