Billy Simpson is a shady boxing promoter in South London banned from legitimate fights. It's the biggest day of his life, though, because he has a champion on his hands, his twenty-year-old son, Eddie. Billy's put all of his money on a victory, as have his quarrelling daughters. But Eddie is nervous, an odd guy in a cap is hanging around, the licensed promoter Billy has hired to arrange the evening's other fights has hired dogs, the manager of Eddie's opponent looks down scornfully on Billy and on south London, and Scotland Yard wants to put Billy in jail for the death of a club brawler. When the night goes disastrously wrong, Billy tries to find out who double-crossed him.
All That's Left Is... Revenge.

Although this film was previously passed for an uncut 18 in the UK by the British Board of Film Classification, the 2007 distributor wanted a 15, so 30 seconds' worth of cuts were made to remove some of the violence, including a man being shot in the head and a man having his arm broken. See more
