The film about a mixed martial arts fighter will be the Oscar winner’s directorial debut, reports Deadline.

Written by Michelle Rosenfarb, “Bruised” follows Jackie “Justice”, a mixed martial arts fighter struggling to keep her life together. When six-year-old Manny, the young son she walked out on, returns to Jackie’s life, she must battle her own fears, go up against a rising star of the MMA world, and strive to be a good mother to Manny.
