“One of the great films of 2015” (Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle) teams the director of Training Day and The Equalizer and screenwriters Kurt Sutter (Sons of Anarchy, The Bastard Executioner) and Richard Wenk (The Mechanic, The Equalizer) on the riveting story of Light Heavyweight Boxing Champion Billy "The Great" Hope, whose career and life spiral downward when tragedy strikes and his lifelong manager and friend leaves him behind. At rock bottom Billy turns to an unlikely savior at a run-down local gym: a retired fighter and trainer to the city's toughest amateur boxers. With his future riding on his new mentor's guidance and tenacity, Billy enters the hardest battle of his life as he struggles with redemption and to win back the trust of those he loves.
