Description

The Mental Game The Mental Game is an autobiographical film written and directed by first time filmmakers Muhammad & Abdullah Davis. It is the story of two young brothers who have dedicated their lives to martial arts and becoming world champion fighters. But they struggle with the mental aspect of fighting. They know that the majority of champion fighters come from broken homes and backgrounds of disenfranchisement, while they live comfortable lives in a healthy nuclear family. They are fearful of not having enough to fight for to drive them to become world champions. In this film they seek the counsel of their grandfather, a Vietnam Veteran who has led a very tough life and understands what it takes to survive and become a champion. This is their story.
