Brace yourself for The Knockout, a new feature film being shot in Devon, which promises to jab at the emotions through a punchy, kicky, boxy journey (… it features kickboxing).
Produced by Darklight Films, The Knockout is based in North Devon and the surrounding area. It’s about a young girl who is homeless and lives in a squat. Then she comes across friendship and sport.
‘A retired widow and a taxi driver form an unlikely bond together to help a lonely homeless girl become a world champion kickboxer,’ says the blurb.
Leona Clarke plays Tori who has always been keen on kickboxing and never got anywhere. She meets Lydia, who introduces her to a trainer at the local gym.
The story focuses on the relationships between Tori’s bad boyfriend and Lydia.
