The Fight

  • slideshow_large


Tina, a busy mother of three, can barely find any time for herself. With her husband on nightshifts, her eldest daughter being bullied at school, her parents’ relationship on the rocks, not to mention juggling her own full-time job, she feels life overwhelming her. But things are about to get even more complicated when the reappearance of a former school rival forces Tina to face up to some difficult memories. Determined to regain control, Tina steps into the boxing ring and discovers how to fight for herself. The ever-charming Hynes proves herself as adept behind the camera as she is in front of it, crafting an effortlessly warm and witty family drama that proves we all have a lot to learn about ourselves, no matter our age.
