In the wake of a family tragedy, a farmer accepts an underground street fight in which he is paid to lose.
The story follows an unnamed farmer and his wife who find themselves in ruin after the loss of a child. 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.
Our hero must make the ultimate decision - fight for his redemption, or lay down and submit.
