A treat for fans of mixed martial arts and, er, those who wish to raise awareness of mental illness. Writer/director Cassius Corrigan stars as cage fighter Alonso Santos, who wallops his opponents in the ring and also battles outside it as he struggles to overcome his Dissociative Identity Disorder, which manifests itself in his fearsomely aggressive alternate personality.

The film’s blurb tells us that its aim is to celebrate Latino talent in front of and behind the camera, and to “capture the emotional truth of living as a trauma survivor and struggling with mental illness.”
