Sand Bag

Synopsis: 
Cisco returns home to the Dominican Republic after doing time in a United States prison. His alcoholic mother is in delicate health, and the only way for him to get some money is to fight on the streets. Nichi, a former Italian boxer lives in exile near the neighborhood. He sees in Cisco a diamond in the rough and as a way of getting out of debt caused by his gambling addiction. Nichi decides to train Cisco, and little by little, he discovers there is atonement for both of them in the game. They have to make it to the final match and make the dream inside the ring come true.
