Inspired by a true story, this film is about a stuntwoman who enters the high stakes private world of female Bare Knuckle fighters to earn money to support her daughter. Roxborough (who strongly resembles Robin Wright Penn) plays Samantha with a combination of vulnerability and steely determination to prevail against all odds. Fine performances by veteran actors Martin Kove and Chris Mulkey as her manager and trainer make this film engaging and exciting to watch. It gives the viewer an inside look at a secret world that only the very rich and selected get to see
