Three amateur brawlers with a long history together compete in a televised fighting contest with a $200,000 top prize in this rock 'em sock' em action flick from South Korea. Twenty-five years ago, Deok-kyu (Hwang Jung-Min), Jae-seok (Yoon Jea-moon), and Sang-hoon (Yoo Joon-Sang) were the most fearsome fighters in their high school. These days former Olympic hopeful Deok-kyu struggles to keep his noodle shop afloat as Jay-seok runs with a low-level street gang, and Sang-hoon bides his time in a boardroom, lamenting the lack of excitement in his life. Upon learning of a new television show that offers former street fighters a shot at some serious money, all three race to get back in shape, and claim the big cash prize.
