What is Waves about?

Tyler Williams (Kelvin Harrison Jr.) is a popular high school senior on the wrestling team. Outside of school, he parties with his friends and spends time with his girlfriend Alexis, but is routinely pushed to be better by his domineering father, Ronald. Unbeknownst to anyone at school or home, Tyler suffers from a Level 5 SLAP tear, which he keeps secret from his family and team by discreetly stealing his father's painkillers. Against the recommendation of his doctor, Tyler continues to wrestle competitively until he is violently thrown onto his shoulder during a match, causing irreparable damage and ending his season, as well as his career. Tyler's life is further complicated when he receives a text from Alexis, who reveals that her period is late, indicating that she is pregnant. He takes her to get an abortion, but when confronted by pro-life protesters outside the clinic, Alexis contemplates bringing the child to term. Tyler objects to becoming parents at their age, but Alexis is saddened by his insensitivity to her own feelings, and walks home alone.
Distraught, Tyler begins drinking heavily and abusing drugs at parties with his friends. Eventually, Tyler texts Alexis, who is willing to mend their relationship. She tells Tyler that she has decided to keep the child with support from her family, but when Tyler demands to speak to her in person, Alexis breaks up with him and blocks his number, sending him into a rage as he destroys his bedroom. The night of the school's "Maverick Ball", a grounded Tyler goes on Instagram and sees a picture showing Alexis posing with another boy. He gets high and attempts to leave the house, but is confronted by Catherine. Ronald attempts to defuse the situation, but Tyler throws him to the floor and leaves.
