When Shawn gets into an altercation while selling bootleg CDs and DVDs, a con man (Terrance Howard) who witnesses the brawl takes him under his wing and introduces Shawn to NYC's underground street-fighting circuit. In these bare-knuckle battles, Shawn has a chance to win significant money, and also the heart of the beautiful Zulay (Zulay Henao).
