The story of three students at the world-renowned Havana Boxing Academy, as they prepare for Cuba’s national championships. More than athletes, these young men are symbols of pride—the standard bearers of the Revolution, according to Fidel Castro. As they train, however, crisis strikes: Castro falls seriously ill, and a number of the country’s Olympic boxing heroes defect to the USA. As Cuba finds itself at a crossroads, the boys contemplate a changing world.
