In the fast-rising sport of Bricklaying, an anti-doping agent and disgraced former champion must take down the champion's former nemesis, who they suspect is using a bricklaying-enhancement drug known as "Brick Dust."
Synopsis/Details: 

It's the late 80's, and the ball companies have taken their business to other countries, forcing America to come up with a replacement for popular sports like football, baseball and basketball. The answer? Bricklaying!

Meet WAYNE Walker, the World’s Greatest Bricklayer. He lays bricks so fast, he holds the Guiness World Record for most bricks laid in one hour. His catchphrase is Get Laid! But at the peak of his fame, Wayne is busted for using performance enhancing drugs, and banned from bricklaying for 20 years. He loses everything, including the adoration of his 8-year-old daughter, HARLEY.

20 years later, HARLEY joins the World Anti-Doping Agency, determined to bust cheaters in any sport possible -- except, of course, bricklaying. Harley’s boss JIM informs her that her first mission is use her father to get intel on a deadly new steroid called Brick Dust! Reluctantly, Harley approaches Wayne under the guise of wanting to reconnect as father and daughter and persuades him to pick up the trowel.

Wayne assembles his old team: TEDDY - the wheelchair bound mason tender, SAUL - a gruff sports agent, and LANA - his ex-lover and the spokeswoman for Magic Hands Moisturizing Cream. Together, they vow to take down Wayne's longtime nemesis and the new star of bricklaying, KAL Vilmer!

Meanwhile, Harley struggles to expose the source of the Brick Dust while keeping her day job a secret from her father, and Wayne slowly learns to cope with the temptations of his old lifestyle. After nearly losing at Regionals, Teddy is struck dead by a semi-truck, and Harley agrees to take his place.

Wayne and Harley visit his old mentor Arnold Schwarzenegger, an ex-bricklayer, for an epic training montage. Just as Wayne and Harley are growing closer, Wayne discovers Harley works for W.A.D.A. and decides to withdraw from the competition -- but after a heart felt speech from Harley, the two reconcile for real.

At the Bricklayer 500 in Las Vegas, a young hot shot bricklayer named ROD Mason kidnaps Wayne, fits him with cement shoes, and attempts to drown him in a pool. Harley rescues Wayne just in time, puts two and two together, then notifies Jim that Kal and Rod were the culprits behind the Brick Dust all along.

Wayne and Harley lose the competition, but win each other.
