Delivering an emotional gut-punch, this documentary traces the divergent paths of boxing talents Kenny Jr. and Destyne Jr over an eight-year period. Raised in the dangerous, volatile world of Chicago's notorious South Side, the two friends and rivals are trained by their fathers and begin promising careers at roughly the same time. But while Kenny starts to gain a foothold in the world of professional boxing and tries to make the Olympic team, Destyne has to serve time in prison for criminal trespass and burglary. The result is a moving story about redemption, ambition, discipline and the irrepressible hope of overcoming the odds.
