Synopsis

How does it feel to be the underdog? Wilson “Mib” Semedo is a sixteen years-old teenager living in the suburbs of Lisbon, Portugal. Together with his young friends from the neighborhood, he finds a way out from its difficult reality in the boxing gym of Mr.Ramalho. But no matters how hard he trains, nobody seems really to believe in his potential. When boxing becomes the ultimate challenge for social emancipation, the first official match is a mountain to climb for a teenager. Firefly offers the chance for living that match together with Mib. Will he make it?
