Family is worth fighting for.
Don't kill each other...
This highly-rated sports drama is set against the backdrop of Mixed Martial Arts, but like Million Dollar Baby, the real story is about what happens outside the ring. Two brothers have drifted apart from each other and their alcoholic father. One became a soldier, the other a teacher. However financial circumstances force both of them to resort to fighting for a living, aiming to win a five million dollar MMA competition. The soldier ropes in his dad, now sober, to train him, while the school teacher, since fired, calls on an old friend. As the plot will have it, the two brothers end up in the ring facing each other in the final fight for the championship.
