In front of thousands of fans, he is expected to knock out the long-standing champion. Mid-match, however, a blackout occurs, during which Ace is murdered, and a chaotic scramble to find the killer follows. Fast-paced and engaging, this B-movie mystery is filled with A-level writing and performances.
