About a feared cage fighter in Mixed Martial Arts, Daniel is closing in on greatness―until an injury derails his career. Out of work in his country hometown, Daniel slips into the underworld, moonlighting as muscle for a childhood-friend-turned-mid-level-gangster. While his wife works nights and his twelve-year-old daughter gets into scraps of her own, Daniel tries to escape and build a nobler life for his family―but he sinks deeper into a violent, unpredictable world, soon sparking a conflict that can only be settled in blood.
