Depression-era New York in winter is where we find our hero Jim Braddock and his family at the start of this heart-warming true story. Once a successful boxer, Jim has been forced out of the game through injury, and can now barely afford to feed his family. But by lifting sacks with his left hand while working on the docks, Jim develops a secret skill - and when the chance comes to get back into the ring, he takes it. At last, success and security are in his sights. All he must do now is challenge the world champion - a man so strong he killed his last two opponents.
