In the tradition of Rocky and City of God The Kid: Chamaco (aka Fighter) is a contemporary boxing tale of father and son overcoming vast differences to help train a young Mexican fighter plucked from the streets of Mexico City. The father is a US doctor, and his son, a burned-out boxing pro, unite to shape the young Mexican teenager into his country's new idol. Along the way, the three men discover hidden strengths, and embrace unforeseen destinies.
