An inspiring true story that spans eight years and five continents- the story of the Muay Thai fighter Malaipet, known to his fans as 'The Diamond'.

After Malaipet retires to go and stay on his father's humble rice farm, an American fight manager recruits Malaipet to go, live and fight in the US. Knowing that his father is in debt Malaipet agrees.

Once in the US Malaipet starts living the American dream, winning a number of bouts before the celbrity lifestyle caught up with him, and his excess drinking, womanizing and lack of training began to show in the number of bouts he's losing.

Once again desperate for money, Malaipet agrees to fighting in the octagon against other Mixed Martial Artists [MMA], and manages to thrill audiences and win a national TV contract.

How will 'The Diamond' rise, fall, only to rise again until he can pay off the debt of his father's farm?
