Grey's Anatomy star Chyler Leigh headlines this martial arts thriller focusing on the bitter feud between two Miami Beach kickboxing dojos. Danny (Christopher Khayman Lee - Chyler's real-life brother) is a former kickboxer whose old martial arts academy is gearing up for a bout against a rival school. The stakes are high for this particular match, because this is a fight for ownership -- the winner will become the owner of their rival's school. Danny isn't about to let his friends lose their dojo, but he's still recovering from the trauma of accidentally killing a competitor in the ring, and fighting doesn't come easy for him these days. As the fight draws ever closer, Danny wonders if he'll be able to summon the courage needed to step in the ring again. Danny's grim outlook on life begins to shift, however, when he meets and falls for the beautiful Cindy (Leigh), who accepts the damaged fighter, fears and all.
