From inner-city housing projects to the biggest stages in boxing, this
insightful and provocative documentary charts the lives of some of
America’s heaviest hitters, including Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield, and
Bernard Hopkins, as they seek to break out of poverty via one of the
few outlets available. Director Bert Marcus skillfully weaves their
personal histories and gripping footage from their biggest bouts to
explore the meaning of the American dream in a society increasingly
fragmented between rich and poor.
