"...This is an exceedingly well directed, cleverly filmed and edited, tension-filled affair..."

Four suburban men, one of them married with a newborn infant, drive into downtown Chicago to attend a major boxing match. They take a wrong turn and end up travelling through one of Chicago's tough, depressed neighborhoods, wishing they had never turned off the freeway, and end up fighting for their lives.
