“Lightning Rod Rhodes” is a man of integrity that won’t sell out to the under world powers that run the fight game. His virtues end up costing him his mother and sends him on the lamb, becoming a homeless ex-boxer that’s life is destroyed. After years on the run he comes to the aid of a young inner-city kid that’s looking to shake the ruthless drug dealers that killed his brother and are trying to drag him into their dark world. A single social worker mother that doesn’t want to lose another son to the streets, a corrupt cop looking for something more to help and an inner-city status quo that leaves a young Reggie Hall with no good options in life. Until that fateful day when the homeless ex-boxer and inner-city kid meet and their unlikely bond helps them face the future, while fighting the tragedy from their past.
