BOUT: Against all odds, Jane bravely moves from darkness to the light as she chooses
forgiveness over bitterness, reason over folly, and integrity over compromise. But when she
comes face to face with the biggest test of her courage — that of following a heart awakened —
will she be brave enough to risk everything for love?
