Thirty-five-year-old Miles Young is desperate for cash and a chance to make a comeback as a professional boxer. Isabelle Gilmore, a money launderer for Belizean gangsters, hires him to find her teenage daughter Rian and the money she's stolen from her. Supposedly, Rian stole only $10,000. Unknown to Miles, it is more than thirty times that amount and it belongs to notorious drug dealers. The closer he comes to locating the elusive Rian, the closer him and his loved ones come to dying. From official release/information:
Boxer Miles Young thinks he's got one more shot in him before it's time to hang up the gloves for good. He may be the only one who thinks so. The truth is, he enjoys the recognition his career has brought him at home, in the small Latin American country of Belize, and he's worried about how he'll support his daughter once it's over. So when his promoter comes to him with a proposition that includes one last big fight, he listens.
