An ex-boxer, living with the knowledge that his fight career was cut short by a crooked manager, channels his bitter disappointment in a single-minded quest for boxing championships for his three sons. We see them in pee-wee Silver Glove matches with dad constantly pushing them. Ten years later, they're young men, with dad as both father and manager. A professional promoter, Nick Everson, wants to sign the boys, but dad rejects those offers. Then, in expressions of their varied relationships with their father, each son makes his own decisions. Can dad ever step aside, and can the family hold together? Written by
Carrying on a family tradition comes at a high price.
A Latino ex-boxer(Jimmy Smits)is angered by the fact he was forced to end his career early. He is now determined to make boxing champs out of his three talented sons. The tension associated with the boxing world and the tribulations of the sons trying to gain stardom soon threatens family harmony. Very interesting fight scenes and emotional drama drive this one to a 'feel good' finale. Good support from Jon Seda, Ron Perlman and Maria del Mar.
