A film from director Ignacio Castillo Cottin, this biopic chronicles the life, love story and eventual downfall of Venezulan boxer Edwin “El Inca” Valero, whose career came to a crashing halt when he was arrested on suspicion of his wife’s murder.

A fighting force of nature, El Inca is propelled toward fame through pure willpower and, despite an accident that threatened to end his boxing career, would become known as one of the boxing greats in Latin America. However, his mental stability and personal life, namely his relationship with his wife Jennifer, become his undoing as marital tensions begin to unravel the boxer’s psyche, eventually leading to a tragic end.

El Inca was the official Venezuelan entry to the 90th Academy Awards.
