Hard-hitting and hopeful, Israel Cárdenas and Laura Amelia Guzmán's (SAND DOLLARS) heartfelt boxing drama is set on the mean streets of Santo Domingo. After a stint in a U.S. prison, Francisco "Cisco" Castillo (Algenis Pérez Soto, SUGAR) returns home to a dearth of options and little chance of supporting his alcoholic mother and rebellious teenage son. Then Cisco meets Nichi (Ettore D'Alessandro), a washed-up boxer with a gambling addiction who assures him there's cash in street fighting. Nichi offers to train the naturally gifted Cisco in the boxing ring, and the pair discover there is hope for both of them in the game. Official Selection, 2017 Tribeca and Buenos Aires film festivals.
