Paul Harris is the son of a winery owner, insulated by his parent's money from the rough realities of life. Rob Tully is a born boxer, training with his father and uncle, and whose natural talent might change all their lives. When a vicious bar room beating shows Paul the fear and weakness inside of him, it sparks a chain of events that will have dramatic consequences for both young men and everyone around them.
Based on the novel The Fighter by Craig Davidson (Rust & Bone), The Fight Machine is a reflection on the relationship between fathers and sons, and the ultimate question of how a young man makes his way in today's society.
