A boxer facing assault charges. A psychologist with a secret agenda
Michael Lowe (Short + Sweet 2013) directs Simon Ward (Eigengrau, Space Race) and Simon Wolfgram (Leopard, Primary Motivations by Guilt & Shame) in the premiere season of Thumper, written by Simon Ward.
In the aftermath of his first ever loss, professional boxer Peter faces assault charges and struggles to face the fact that he is past his prime. A psychologist tasked with Peter's pre-trial assessment, races the clock to establish trust with this reluctant client, but hides a motive to betray that trust and risk his career - to ensure that Peter's brutality does not go unpunished.
Don't start a fight if you don't know how to finish it.
