Uncommonly sensitive impression of the world of boxing, focussing on the soft and human side of the sometimes very young fighters and their coaches. Comradery beats rivalry.

Intimate impression, close-up and fly-on-the-wall, showing the softer side of the world of boxing. The emphasis is more on the atmosphere and preparations in the gym and locker rooms than on the bouts themselves. Two children and three adolescents practice and prepare for a match. Hands and faces, expectant looks, careful attention. Tension and satisfied fatigue. Comradery beats rivalry.
