Synopsis by Mark Deming
A man decides to prove himself by learning to fight in this independent comedy drama. Joseph Rex (Roy Jahangard) is an introverted middle-aged businessman who is going through a midlife crisis and needs to lose some weight. Joseph has become the frequent butt of jokes from a self-consciously macho co-worker Paul (Owen McKibben), and one day Joseph allows himself to get talked into entering an amateur boxing tournament to prove to Paul he can go the distance. Joseph knows he's in no shape to go into the ring, so he hires Jake (Adam Guertin) to train him, only to discover Jake doesn't have much practical knowledge of the fight game. Still, with the encouragement of his best friend Frank (Stephen Sepher), whose romantic problems have sent him into a midlife crisis of his own, Joseph drops thirty pounds in sixty days, and begin to look like he might just make it through the tournament after all. The first feature film for Roy Jahangard and Stephen Sepher -- who respectively wrote and directed the film as well as playing two of the leading roles -- One More Round also features supporting appearances from Udo Kier and Patrick Cranshaw.
