A disgraced fighter finds redemption in and out of the ring.

Academy Award ® winning actress Halle Berry directs and stars in the triumphant sports drama - Bruised - about a fighter who reclaims her power, in and out of the ring, when everyone has counted her out.

Jackie Justice (Berry) is a mixed martial arts fighter who leaves the sport in disgrace. Down on her luck and simmering with rage and regret years after her last fight, she’s coaxed into a brutal underground fight by her manager and boyfriend Desi (Adan Canto) and grabs the attention of a fight league promoter (Shamier Anderson) who promises Jackie a life back in the octagon.

But the road to redemption becomes unexpectedly personal when Manny (Danny Boyd, Jr.) — the son she gave up as an infant — shows up at her doorstep.

Bruised premieres on Netflix on November 24.
