Sweet and Mafia boss kingpin Sal Civelo, formulate a ruthless and provocative campaign aimed at putting Delgado back into the pit. As pressure builds and danger closes in, Bobby has to concoct a subtle mind game to confront his nemesis in an environment that he can control. What follows is a brutal... Written by

According to Filmtreat.com this film Have already returned is budget several times.Low Budget Films with a budget under 1.000.000 USD are in General and most of the time of poor Quality standards in matter of production Values and actions sequences.This 7000 AUD Feature Film Has more Grunt and Humanity then most of The Newly Fantasized UFC Fever MMA Pseudo Martial Art Flick.This no Budget little film managed to win a Award for is Fights in 2008 International Action On Film Festival relying only on the strength and Talent of is Actors, Director and writers.What a amazing achievement on is own,of course we can pick many faults due to low end equipment and some can also pin point the quality of the Audio recording of the Voice Over but at the end of the day Nobody can ignore that this guys got Talent and are to be watched closely when they would manage to get another project under a proper financial scheme.I have found the real strength of this Film to be the underlying message that the main Character was more of a victim of is own making that only redemption would take him out of this deadly Game, Very touching and very Human.
