Long ago, boxer Arturo Ortega (Jimmy Smits) could have been a contender but was cheated by a duplicitous manager. So Arturo channeled his ambition into training his sons: Sonny (Jon Seda), Jimmy (Clifton Collins Jr.) and Johnny (Ernesto Hernandez). Determined to do right by them, Arturo oversees every aspect of their careers. But, after he hastily rejects an offer from a major fight promoter (Ron Perlman), Arturo's sons begin to question his leadership and struggle against their family ties.
