The true story of Olli Mäki, the famous Finnish boxer who had a shot at the 1962 World Featherweight title. The problem: Olli is falling in love; boxing and romance become adversaries for Olli’s attention. This is a beautifully filmed, well acted look at the balance between career fulfillment and personal happiness.
