Movie synopsis: Herbert, a former boxing champion, uses his impressive frame and fists, still capable of brutal strength, in his rather unimpressive career as a bouncer and debt collector. Yet it is his tattooed body, his tool and pride, which betrays him when an illness manifests itself, and gradually robs him of his strength. Herbert struggles to fight his greatest match with dignity, and looks for flashes of human connections in his fragmented relationships with an estranged daughter, a young boxer whom he trains, and with his girlfriend, all the while inevitably heading to his last K.O. The physically intense insight into accepting one's mortality is facilitated through the amazing performance of the main protagonist.
