Once Eddie gets his large debt with the crime ringleader, he finds a way to quickly get rich. He gets Walter (Wight), a giant, to help him and be his accomplice. The orphanage that Walter has called home also needs money. When Eddie hears Walter's situation, he talks a nun, Sister Francesca (Wendie Malick) into letting Walter fight to pay the church debt. Eddie makes a plan to go to multiple towns and have Walter fight in fighting competitions for money. Meanwhile, Sister Francesca sends Mary (Melora Hardin) to supervise Walter and the money that is made. Sister Francesca prays for Eddie and gives him only one week to pay off the debt. When they go South to attend the Pro-Am MMA tournament that is located in New Orleans, Walter realizes what it is like not staying at the orphanage. Eddie has difficult decisions to make: should he keep all the money himself as was his original plan or take care of the promise he had made to Walter and the orphanage. Walter is really the only person that Eddie was ever true friends with.
Best part of story, including ending:
I really like this story because Eddie, after all his criminal activity, finds a friend in someone who really is nothing like him.
Best scene in story:
My favorite scene was when Walter got to New Orleans and realized that he was living a life outside the orphanage. After the only life he had ever known, he realizes change isn't always bad.
Opinion about the main character:
I really like that Eddie found a friend in Walter. After his life in criminal activity, it didn't seem as if he would take to Walter.
