Samuel Villegas was born and raised in the neighborhood. All seems to have happened to him too early in life; boxing, marriage, children and even crime.

After eight years in prison he finally returns to his neighborhood. He has plenty of talent to be champion, but what seems to come naturally for him is to take hits like a punching-bag. Now, at his thirty, he has to become a sparring partner because nobody wants to give him another chance . It’ll not be easy for Samuel to let himself get hit by a younger man, who’s not a better boxer than him and who has also taken his place in the heart of his son and his coach.
All he wants is to go back to the ring and prove himself and others that he can change. He’ll then realize, that it is hopeless, there’s no way he can change the course of his life no matter how hard he tries. Who stays in the neighborhood, dies in the neighborhood. However, if Samuel has to die, he’ll do it with his gloves on”.
