Relocated back to his birthplace in Southend, troubled foster-teen Adam Watson is aggressive and out of control. However, when he meets charismatic promoter Makayla Lewis, she introduces him to the exciting “no limits” world of UK battle-rap where Adam’s quick wit and sharp lyricism soon makes him a fan favourite.
Setting his sights on a match up with local battle-god Slaughter, Adam's lyrics become more controversial and he’s prepared to say anything to win - even if it means alienating himself from Makayla and his new circle of friends. But when he doorsteps his biological mother after twelve years in care, he’s forced to face his toughest opponent yet: his past.
