FLORIDA PREMIERE!
Cisco returns home to the Dominican Republic after doing time in a U.S. prison.

 

Cisco returns home to the Dominican Republic after doing time in a U.S. prison. His alcoholic mother is in delicate health, and the only way for him to earn some money is to fight on the streets. Nichi, once a promising boxer in Italy, now lives in exile near the neighbourhood, and sees Cisco as a diamond in the rough to be polished, one who can help Nichi get out of his gambling debts. Once Nichi decides to train Cisco, each man discovers their atonement along the way, with Cisco’s final bout holding the promise of redemption for them both.

 

Producer Carolina Encarnacion will be in attendance for a Q&A.
