Bret Hart, five-time champion of the World Wrestling Federation, sits in a hotel room one day before the most important fight of his life. What Bret doesn't know is that he will be the target of the biggest double cross in the history of professional wrestling. Hitman Hart: Wrestling with Shadows is a film about loyalty and betrayal, values and power. It is the story of the real life battle between Bret Hart and Vince McMahon, owner of the WWF.
Fueled by the personality of Owen Hart, convincingly portrayed as a loving family man who wrestled only for the money and recoiled at some the WWF's sexual and violent excesses, this is an undeniably poignant tale.
