Released from prison after serving seven years of hard time, taciturn ex-con Eddie Castillo finds his quest for post-incarceration tranquility violently shattered when his younger brother David becomes involved with the same kind of illegal, underground fights that once landed Eddie in the pen. As a young boy, David idolized his older brother. Eddie was tough, and he could always take care of himself. Realizing that the only way to save his little brother is to help steer him away from the same violent path that he once walked, Eddie quickly learns that David has to learn from his own mistakes. Later, when David is killed in an especially brutal underground brawl, Eddie resolves to find the man who killed his brother by venturing back into the same world he once swore off for good. Now, as Eddie becomes hopelessly torn between redemption and revenge, he finds that there is no escaping his one true fate. Armand Assante and Flavor Flav star.
