Coal has long gone from Coalville. Left of this once thriving Leicestershire town are young men like Stevie Gold, who dream of glory in an economically crippled community.
Once a hardened criminal, Stevie finds redemption and fame through bare knuckle boxing. When he breaks his hand, loses the love of his life and is challenged to a rematch against a far more experienced fighter, he has only his family and himself to lead him to victory.
