A down on his luck boxer, grappling with his father’s legacy, is forced into the world of underground crime where he unravels the mystery of his father’s death.
Has every bone in your body ever told you to follow your heart; to do the opposite of what everyone around you is telling you to do?
DarkHorse is a metaphor for the struggle and compromise most of us are faced with in many parts of our lives. In some cases, allowing darkness to seep in; and given enough time, pressure and abuse, forcing goodness to rise to the surface, kick you in the nuts, and fight like hell for what is truly important.
Continually throughout history there have been moments when the people of this world are confronted with difficult choices and the forces of people who have their own agenda. DarkHorse tells a story of people who choose to be honourable, in its billions of shades of grey. It gives us inspiration to empower ourselves, follow our hearts and honour our soul. Inspiration which is being sought by so many, in our ever evolving society.
