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

Good to see an almost all-Latino movie BUT...
the plot is ooollllddddd!!! A father tries to relive his old boxing glory days through his sons. Wow. How original. The plot has been done hundreds of times before and, except for the ethnicity of the cast, this movie adds nothing to it. Every single plot point is predictable and there's a lousy performance by Jimmy Smits. Thankfully the three young men who play his sons give strong performances and single-handedly keep the movie afloat. Also the Latino women are hardly in the movie, but when they're on screen, they're great! (For the record, I'm white). Let's get more Latino movies out there...just give them more original plots!
