Boxer Billy Hope (Jake Gyllenhaal) has everything going for him – he’s just won a title fight, he lives in a mansion and has a loving and beautiful wife Maureen (Rachel McAdams) and an adoring daughter Leila (Oona Laurence).

Billy attends a charity function, where another boxer disses him and a fight breaks out. One of his team pulls a gun and fires a shot to stop the violence, but Maureen is hit. She dies in Billy’s arms.

Grief stricken, Billy loses the will to live, but realizes that Leila now needs him more than ever. However, his manager has mismanaged his funds and Billy finds himself on the street. Leila is taken away by the courts and put into the same system that he once was a part of when he was a kid. He needs to get back on his feet in order to get Leila, the only person he has left, back home with him. But first he has to have a home.
