Jake La Motta is a boxer whose psychological and sexual complexities erupt into violence both in and out of the ring. His brother, Joey, falls prey to Jake's mounting paranoia and jealousy, and fifteen-year-old Vickie, becomes Jake's most prized trophy. The same anger that drives Jake in the ring, ultimately drives him to beat his wife and brother, and sends Jake down a self-destructive spiral of paranoia and rage.
