Sailor O'Connor (Purcell) is a retired Irish boxer, who has not once been knocked down in the 63 matches he's fought. O'Connor's mother Rose (McCarthy) is dying of cancer and Sailor wants to take her to Ireland. After negotiating with a local promoter, Sailor secures enough money whether or not he wins. Though a long way from his prime, Sailor convinces his old training team Brother Albright and Max Wynn (Caan and Ironside) to get into shape for the bout against a younger opponent. A local priest, Father Brennan (Coates), tries to convince Rose to have Sailor back out of the fight, to which she says it's up to him to leave.
