I found the film very inspiring and I highly recommend it. A true story about a family doing their very best to raise a troubled young man as best as they can. The acting was superb, the cast did not feel like they were acting. Alvaro Orlando as the young man/boxer gives an excellent performance. Oscar Torre as his uncle and ex-boxer, who is fighting to keep his dignity while raising his nephew as best as he can, gives a heart breaking performance, as well as Yeniffer Behrens as his drug addicted mother and Ivonne Coll as the grandmother and the glue that keeps the family together. Danny Trejo as a mental health counselor gives one of his best performances, in a role we are not accustomed to seeing him. Kenneth Castillo does a fine job with the direction. My only critique is, the boxing sequences seemed a little low budget but this is much more than a boxing film, it's a story about survival.
