Description

Although Samuel has plenty of talent to be a boxing champion, it seems like life treats him like a punching bag. Now at thirty, he has to become a sparring partner because nobody is willing to give him a chance after a stint in jail. Unable to feed his family and with temptations all around him, Samuel’s thoughts are consumed with getting back in the ring, proving to himself and everyone else that he is a champion. But in the neighborhood where he’s from, putting down his guard for one second is the difference between success and falling back on dangerous habits.
