AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Alexandra (Agnieszka Perepeczko) owns a boxing gym in the inner Sydney suburb of Newtown. Her fierce rival is Pearl Wilkinson (Lynette Curran), a corrupt local businesswoman and political candidate. Pearl is in league with Keats (John Doyle), a shady property developer who is determined to acquire Alexandra’s building by any means. Paula’s campaign to discredit Alexandra and her boxers coincides with the return of Johnny (Richard Roxburgh), a troubled ex-fighter and former lover of Alexandra. With local cop Jack (Paul Chubb) also in his pocket, Keats enlists Paula’s brother Bobby (Paul Goddard) to threaten Alexandra. As the turf war escalates, Johnny and Alexandra’s star welterweight, Manny (Tibor Gyapjas), enters the fray.'
