Adam was the scariest man in the National Hockey League, but now he’s been demoted to the minors, gotten high on painkillers and trashed the locker room at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center. His friends need to talk him down before he gets into real trouble, but he’s got his own agenda, and is spoiling for one last fight. A modern-day riff on Sophocles’ Ajax, seen through the lens of the last true gladiator sport.
