Synopsis

Ladies' man Matthew is a professional boxer who has trouble communicating his feelings and Neville is an aspiring stand-up comic just out of a convent-based rehabilitation centre. The family has been torn apart by tragedy. Their mother is serving time in prison for the murder of Neville's father (Matthew's stepfather), an event they both witnessed as young boys. Revisiting his old haunt, Neville quickly becomes captivated with Nico, a young club singer dealing with the pain of her adopted mother's imminent death. Struggling with both his comedy routine and a romance that doesn't appear to be going anywhere, Neville succumbs to temptation and resumes his drug habit. Back at rehab, he seeks compassion from one of the nuns. He begins to find an inner peace, only to face a final showdown with Matthew that tests the strength of their bond.
