Bruise Brubaker (Mr. T) is one of life's contradictions. An illiterate, ex-Marine, Vietnam veteran and bouncer in a Chicago nightclub, Bruise is also the sole force behind a centre for troubled kids. It is the threat of closure of the centre, due to lack of funds, that convinces Bruise to enter the "Toughest Man in the World" competition. The current holder of the title however, who is backed by a local crime syndicate, has no plans to relinquish the crown or the prize money. Not easily intimidated and believing that true strength is knowing the "right way to go", Bruise prepares himself both physically and mentally and with right and might, crashes through the barriers set before him to become THE TOUGHEST MAN IN THE WORLD.
also stars Jobe Cerny, Ron Dean, Diane Dorsey, Joe V. Greco, Rom Milanovich, Lynne Moody, John P. Navin Jr and Peggy Pope.
