Synopsis

An epic 12-year journey into the brutal and secretive world of Irish Traveler bare-knuckle fighting. Residing in Ireland and parts of the United Kingdom, the Travelers are a nomadic ethnic group with their own customs and a deep sense of clan pride, despite being interrelated by marriage within their small population. When conflicts arise between rival clans, arguments are often settled through ritualized, bare-knuckle fighting.
