Here’s the trailer for MMA drama Embattled, starring Stephen Dorff. Released in select theaters and on VOD on November 20th, it is the latest directorial effort from Nick Sarkisov.
Having grown up with an abusive father, (Stephen Dorff) channels his aggression to become a World Champion MMA fighter. But now he faces a new challenge when his second son is born with Williams Syndrome – rather than stand and fight though, he flees.
While Cash continues to make his fortune in the ring, his eldest son Jett (Darren Mann) becomes the caregiver to his younger brother Quinn (Colin McKenna). When Jett decides to follow his father’s fighting footsteps and take to the fight game, he faces his past head on, embarking on a course inevitably pitting father versus son in a battle which, no matter the outcome, neither can win.
Synopsis: The eldest son of a ruthlessly tough MMA champion must fight his way out of the abusive cycle his father has continued.
Elizabeth Reaser, Karrueche Tran, Donald Faison, Saïd Taghmaoui and Ava Capri co-star.
