Thomas Napper makes his directorial debut with this hard-hitting boxing drama, which has been choreographed with technical assistance from former featherweight champion Barry McGuigan and his son, Shane, who is David Haye's trainer. Former youth boxing champion Jimmy McCabe (Johnny Harris) has fallen on hard times and has hit rock bottom. Homeless and an alcoholic, the only way for Jimmy to go now is up so he seeks solace in the company of his childhood boxing club. The hall is home to his professional family: gym owner Bill (Ray Winstone), corner man Eddie (Michael Smiley) and wily promoter Joe (Ian McShane). These three men help Jimmy to regain his sense of purpose by putting him back into training for the fight of his life inside and out of the ring.
