There's always a way out. You just have to find it.
It's my turn to wear the red belt tonight!
The master of the con genre, David Mamet, is back with a movie set on the seedy side of life in America. A retired soldier is now a martial arts teacher. His focus is self defence, and he despises the commercial fighting circuit. However circumstances conspire to force him to lower his morals and step into the ring, in an attempt to keep food on the table. This being a Mamet film however, not everything is what it seems...
