Patrick ‘Lights’ Leary, an aging former heavyweight champion, an extremely proud man, and good hearted who after retiring from a very long career is struggling with his identity. His retirement was not by choice, rather dictated by very sever medical diagnosis.

Now his main objective is providing to a family used to a high standard of life, but the task seems daunting. And several business endeavors ended on disastrous notes, losing all of his life savings.

Now left with very limited options, ‘Lights’ must decide whether to either: accept the brutal and demeaning job of debt collector for a local racketeer; or, launch a long shot, health-risking, comeback for the huge payday that would result from becoming "the champ" once again
