Comeback Kid: Liam McNeill

About the film

A sport that takes a toll on the body greater than most, Muay Thai is as brutal in training as it is in practice. Liam is dedicated to the cause. Dedicated to the point of obsession, an experience we are able to share with him in this revealing documentary. In this Documentary-Short we follow a focused young man, once bullied and brushed aside on the footy field, now physically transformed and intimidating in the ring. Vowing to ‘put his life on the line’, can Liam overcome the injuries, the gruelling weight cut and the expectation to comeback victorious?
