Caged follows three mixed martial arts fighters and a top-ranking coach over the course of one year as they follow their extreme pursuit in Australia. MMA contests are often associated with brutality and thuggery, as one of the film's protagonists Marty Nguyen says. The film goes beyond such controversial headlines into real stories of ordinary Australians-turned-athletes as they try to achieve their dream of rising to the top of this extreme sport. Along the way, dangerous practices to cut weight are also highlighted along with their impact on fighters' health and mental state before matches.
