Small-town boy Shawn MacArthur has come to New York City with nothing. Barely earning a living selling counterfeit goods on the streets, his luck changes when scam artist Harvey Boarden sees that he has a natural talent for streetfighting. When Harvey offers Shawn help at making the real cash, the two form an uneasy partnership.
You might expect a movie called “Fighting” to be a blunt, literal affair, and in the case of Dito Montiel’s new film, you would not be wrong.
