There are three ways out: The ring, a cop car, or a pine box.

Mdantsane township is South Africa’s boxing mecca. There, Dudu Nyakama, a down and out ageing boxer, struggles to fight the one match that he believes will change his life.

Contending that the underbelly of the boxing world is rife with criminality, Dudu unwittingly enlists the help of his reckless but resourceful, gangster brother who’s coming out of jail. Haunted by the ghost of their father, Dudu soon finds that the fight at home is far more challenging than any opponent he can possibly face in the ring.
