Billy was accused of possession of drugs, charges that have led him to deal with the consequences of confinement, having to find a way to survive in prison to avoid confrontations with the dangerous bands of the place. In this way, Billy will decide to become an apprentice of Muay Thai, a lethal Thai martial arts teacher who will instruct him in the art of fighting to defend himself. However, when the prison management gives him permission to participate in jail tournaments, Billy will use his knowledge and skills in boxing to open up the competition while doing everything he can to escape an almost certain death.
