Pro boxer Frank Lo Porto dreams of becoming the first Italian/Australian world champion in fifty years, and when current undefeated champion Austin Trout offers him a chance to fight for the title at short notice, Frank jumps at the chance. Facing an uphill battle to be ready in time, Frank undertakes a gruelling training regime that tests his mental, physical and emotional boundaries. But Frank is destroyed in the fight and returns home to confront a new challenge: retire or continue to fight.
"Inside Fighter is the kind of uncontrived and intimate cinematic portrait - free of pretence or judgement - that acts as a reminder of the possibilities of the documentary form."
