Synopsis

Matty Burton is a middleweight boxing world champion, now coming towards the end of his career, who knows that he must make his money and get out of the game. His aim is to secure a home with his wife Emma, and a future for their baby daughter Mia. His opponent is the brash and controversial Andre Bryte. A big puncher who courts controversy with his outlandish statements. Andre’s intent is to rip the title from Matty, a task that Andre feels is going to be easy.
After a titanic battle, Matty returns home to Emma, but moments later collapses on the living room floor from a delayed reaction to a devastating punch. When Matty awakes from the coma, the real fight begins. Suffering from memory loss and with his personality altered, Matty must begin to piece his life back together as his world disintegrates.
A powerful and beautiful story about loss and, ultimately, triumph. About identity, and how in life you sometimes have to dig deep into your soul to discover who you really are.
