The acclaimed directors of Gunner Palace and How to Fold a Flag take us into the world of mixed martial arts fighting. Set around Lafayette, Louisiana, the film follows aspiring fighters and captures the rise of Dustin “the Diamond” Poirier. Gorgeously shot, this is an unexpectedly lyrical portrait of men trying to better themselves through hard work, guts and determination
