Storyline

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 <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Surprisingly good but not for the usual reasons
16 July 2001 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

I truly enjoyed this film and not because of its conventional plot. There is a young star on the rise in the character of Johnny (Ernesto Hernandez) that reminds me of Oscar de La Hoya. He is charismatic and I wish the story had centered more around him. Nevertheless, I thoroughly enjoyed the film even though, I am not a boxing fan
