Broken bones and blood are commonplace at illegal fights held in the backyard of a local fighting legend named, Dada. Almost weekly, young men gather to battle bare knuckle until they are knocked out or tap out while bystanders, men, women, and children, bet on who they think will win. In this small community of South Miami, named Perrine, you're either known for how well you can play basketball or how well you can fight. Some hope the practice will help them become a professional fighter, but most are there just to earn enough money to help make it through another day.
53 miles north, in the mostly middle class city of Coral Springs, teenagers gather in the backyard of their parent's suburban homes to try and make a name for themselves. They push each other off roofs and wrestle with bats and barbed-wire, hoping their antics will be talked about and they will receive the ultimate praise by being reffered to as, 'cool'.
