Thai filmmaker Thanakorn Pongsuwan directs this prequel to the 2009 hardcore action film 'Fireball Begins'. The film traces the origins of violent sport in Thailand's recent history, showing how American soldiers stationed in Thailand during the Vietnam War trained in the Thai martial art Muay Thai. Combining their newfound martial arts skills with the American game of basketball, the American soldiers challenge fighters from local gyms to a 'last man standing' contest in this bloody new hybrid sport.
