Long Synopsis

When down-on-his luck mechanic Jaden Miller (Kent Moran, Listen to Your Heart) and his single mother (S. Epatha Merkerson, Lincoln) are evicted from their home, Miller will do anything to make enough money to keep them off the streets. With the help of legendary trainer, Duane Taylor (Michael Clarke Duncan, The Green Mile), Miller soon finds that Boxing is their ticket to a better life. Transitioning from street fighter to prizefighter is no easy task, but the ‘Bronx Boy’ is soon on a winning streak. He's dubbed a local hero and pursued by the media as he continues to train. But when his mother’s health fails and life-saving surgery is her only option—he must become a champion. In the spirit of Raging Bull, Rocky, and Southpaw, The Challenger celebrates fearlessness in the face of adversity and the overwhelming power of an indomitable will.
