Synopsis

Emilio Manrique is a young boxer from the wrong side of the tracks with dreams of winning the Golden Gloves. An already difficult journey seems almost impossible when he’s diagnosed with bi-polar disorder and feels his world closing in around him. Trying to overcome seemingly endless obstacles and make something of himself, Emilio can’t escape his degenerate friends, an alcoholic mother, her violent boyfriend and his debilitating affliction.
Fortunately, Emilio has a support system in place including his crisis counselor and a surrogate father in the form of his Uncle Frank. Things seem to finally start to turn for him when he earns the confidence and love a beautiful, young boxing promoter bent on getting Emilio his shot at the big time.
