Supported by his parents he seeks help and forms a close bond with his psychotherapist, Roisin. Together they explore his deepest thoughts and the crippling guilt surrounding his brother's death. To manage his aggression Jack joins a boxing gym where his trainer, Pete, believes he has potential and guides him to success.

He finds love in his childhood friend Kirsten. His world is complete at the birth of his son, but when the unthinkable happens, Jack is forced to return to his dark past. Plagued with returning suicidal thoughts his thirst for revenge could cost him everything.

Jack’s toughest fight was not in the boxing ring, it was in his mind.
