Berry plays Jackie Justice, a disgraced MMA fighter who has failed at the one thing she’s ever been good at – fighting, according to Deadline. When 6-year-old Manny, the son she walked out on years ago, returns to her doorstep, Jackie has to conquer her own demons, face one of the fiercest rising stars of the MMA world, and ultimately fight to become the mother the boy deserves. The film has a Rocky-like feel to it with a theme of redemption over failure.  Written by first-time feature writer Michelle Rosenfarb, the storyline highlights a woman’s grueling MMA training in New Jersey as she works to get into the kind of shape necessary to battle much younger opponents.

Join Berry and King for tonight's Spotlight interview  on BET at  9/8c.
