Mark is a Big Wave Surfer. He dreams of being the best. Richie, Mark's best mate shares his love of Big Wave Surfing but has his own ambitions. A carpet layer by day, Richie dreams of becoming a MMA Cage-Fighting Champion. Both are fearless, living life on the edge, daring each other to surf bigger waves, party harder, take greater risks.

In an instant, Mark's Big Wave surfing career is in tatters and Richie is facing a jail term. But for these two friends, giving up is not an option. It's not the mistakes you make but how you overcome them. Their unwavering friendship gives them the courage to battle their demons, rise up from their troubled past and conquer their fears. One good friend can change your life. FIGHTING FEAR combines jaw-dropping and dramatic action footage, blended ... Written by Anonymous
