Derrick is an inner-city teenager who dreams of being Jamaica's next world boxing champion. However, it is an election year and politics divides the country and Derrick's community. His father, a loyal party supporter, and Sin, the community's no-nonsense don, forbid Derrick from going to the boxing gym, as to do so he has to cross party lines. Derrick defiantly follows his heart-and is confronted with the serious repercussions of his decision. An inspiring tale of overcoming adversity and ignorance in the name of unity.
