An ex-junkie golden gloves boxer is faced with the most difficult decision of his life - redemption and honour, or fealty to the criminal underworld.
The story follows an unnamed boxer who finds himself in financial desperation as he awaits the arrival of his first child. 2 years sober and still suffering from a life threatening concussion, fighting professionaly is a distant memory. Our story begins when an old friend with strong ties to the criminal underground offers the boxer in on a purse if he will put back on the gloves and fight. One catch - he must take a dive and throw the fight.
The boxer must make the ultimate decision - fight for his redemption, or lay down and submit.
