Synopsis
Art Long wanted to be a country singer, but has been supporting his family by working as tree-trimmer. Tired of this, Art turns to entering Tough Man boxing contests, in which the fighters beat each other brutally. As Art sinks into this violent world, he drifts further away from his dream of a musical career, and his wife Caroline watches and worries about her husband.
