An ex-con finds it very difficult adjusting to contemporary society, himself and to his dedicated wife, Sharon (Deborah Cox) after spending ten years in prison. But when he's offered a chance to fight again, Shadow (Bokeem Woodbine) - who'd lost his shot at professional boxing- thinks his luck has finally turned. This time around though, its underground street fighting controlled by a merciless, unscrupulous businessman and the stakes are high! Shadow soon finds out that leaving the seedy world of the underground is his biggest challenge yet, and his wife and family may have to pay the price. Will he fight to the finish, or struggle to reclaim the love of his wife...and his own life?
