This documentary of the boxing career of Francis Barrett focuses on the obstacles he faced becoming an amateur boxing champion.

Few could get so far in their careers with so little. The footage is raw in its editing giving a real and rare view of the person. Francis is open and frank leaving him as emotionally vulnerable as his is physically formidable.
