Set in the violent world of mixed martial arts combat, this gritty drama follows two brothers at war with each other, who have pursued separate lives. But preparation for a championship bout soon leads the siblings back into each other's paths.

A bitter look at life, trying to get back the small pieces together, while many of them has been lost on the way. And it is painful, because on purpose, from the beginning, you are asked to choose, find in one of the characters a hero. But it is complex, and through a different way, both brothers and the father manage to gain a place in our heart making the ending painful. Beautifully painful. I don't remember last time the tears were jumping out of my eyes out of control. The acting is so contained, real, amazing. The story is playing very well with our expectations, till the last second. Perfect. Oh and I forgot to mention the fight. I thought I was actually watching a real combat, incredible.
