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.
