A former member of the district mafia in Budapest’s ghetto, Misi started a boxing club to keep children from local families away from crime. One of his students, Zoli, has been boxing in the amateur league for 6 years under Misi’s guidance, and has fought his way up to competing for the world championship belt. Zoli has a tough decision to make; he can either become a professional boxer, which comes with many sacrifices, or he can follow in the footsteps of his mobster father. Misi, as a father figure, does everything in his power to spare Zoli from the mistakes he made in his past.
