In this biopic, Utah teenager Jack Dempsey (Treat Williams) has dreams of one day becoming a heavyweight boxing champ. After securing his first title bout against reigning champ Jess Willard, the powerhouse pugilist gains fame and fortune in his ascent to boxing glory. But success in the ring comes at the cost of a turbulent personal life, as Dempsey faces a draft evasion scandal and troubled marriages to Maxine Cates (Sally Kellerman) and silent screen star Estelle Taylor (Victoria Tennant).
