A Latino boxer must navigate the path between his newfound fame, with all its seductive trappings, and his humble yet proud roots growing up on the hard, mean streets of Jackson Heights, Queens. Surrounded by his childhood friends and an old-school trainer, Lex Vargas endures a devastating personal loss before turning professional, eventually signing with a high-profile promoter. Ultimately his fame and fortune threatens to undermine the longtime bonds he shares with his buddies from the old neighborhood.
