Bleed for This
Set in the 1980s and based on a true story, we follow Vinny ’’The Pazmanian Devil’’ Pazienza, a local Providence boxer, who shoots to stardom after winning two world title fights. After a near-fatal car accident leaves him with a broken neck, he is told he may never walk again. Against all odds and doctor’s orders, a renowned trainer agrees to help him return to the ring just a year after the accident for what could be the last fight of his life.
