What is the plot of Sixty Minutes?

Octavio, an MMA fighter, has one hour to see his daughter on her birthday, or he risks losing custody forever. His only chance of making it in time is to throw his big fight, but in doing so, he upsets a lot of unsavory characters. As the seconds and minutes tick away, Octavio is pushed to his limits.


Who are the cast members of Sixty Minutes?

Emilio Sakraya plays the lead role of Octavio Bergmann. Some Netflix subscribers will recognize the actor from Tribes of Europa as Kiano or JC in the first season of Warrior Nun. Outside of the streaming service, he is known for starring in television shows such as 4 Blocks and Winnetou – The Legend Lives. He also starred in the 2017 movie Rock My Heart.
