Synopsis by Michael Hastings

P. David Ebersole's directorial debut is an ambitious melange of sports film, cop thriller, social realist drama, and issue-oriented after-school special. The story revolves around a pro boxer (Brent Smith) who seeks to use his skills out of the ring, waging a vigilante war against child abusers in his neighborhood while pursuing a championship title. Meanwhile, his wife frets as a pair of crackerjack detectives slowly close in on the self-appointed strong arm of the law. Straight Right was first shown at the L.A. Independent Film Festival.
