As Mr. Sokun uncovers the details of a family secret from his youth, he realizes it has huge ramifications for his muay thai fighting son, Marco (Mikael Daez) and his bokator trained counterpart Sokeat (Khat Vaihang). With their lives in danger, Mr. Sokun must enlist the help of Marco's beleaguered girlfriend Angela (Andrea Torres) and Sokeat's childhood friend Sonita (Meas Thorn Srenai) to stop the two rivals from fighting.
