He's determined to get his life on track and settle down with his girlfriend Mary—but certain people from his past aren't ready to let him move on just yet. The criminal Jackson family are insistent that Henry fight their latest protégé and Henry's brother and father, from whom he is estranged, accept the challenge on his behalf. Henry is determined not to go back to his old ways but, as the day of the big fight draws closer, the pressure on him is mounting. Will he ever find a way to escape his dark past?
