Determined to ditch the dysfunction and beat her inner turmoil, Tina pulls on her fighting gloves, literally – stepping into the boxing ring to sweat out her anxieties and punch up her self-worth, under the watchful eye of her astute coach. But does she have what it takes to get her family off the ropes and emerge victorious?
