Storyline

Jimmy Albright is a young athlete with a passion for boxing. His mentor, Harry Sloan, an aging trainer and former boxer, sees Jimmy's potential, not only as a boxer but as a young man. With Harry's guidance, Jimmy trains and fights his way to the top of his division. All things appear to be on track, except for one small twist: Jimmy's parents, Don and Doreen, don't know he's a boxer. Knowing that his parents wouldn't approve of his career, Jimmy devises a fool-proof system to keep his secret. Unfortunately, Tray, a boxing rival of Jimmy's, discovers Jimmy's secret and plans to eliminate him by telling Jimmy's parents of their son's double life. Tray's treachery unleashes a series of events that lead to death, reconciliation and a dramatic conclusion that culminates in an exciting boxing championship fight. Written by Matt

Very unique movie.
3 June 1999 | by (Kentucky) – See all my reviews

Unique movie about a kid with his dreams of boxing, and the measures he takes to fulfill the dream despite his parents banning boxing. It gets you attached not only to "the kid" but to his good buddies and trainers Harry and Cappy. Good plot and storyline, 2 thumbs up to the creators and actors/actresses. I give it 9.4 out of 10.
