Gershon Luxemburg operates the Jerusalem Boxing Club in a bomb shelter in the southern neighborhoods of Jerusalem. With hundreds of teens coming to the club throughout the years, Gershon claims that “nobody comes to box without a reason.”

The film follows four teens. Gaith, from the Palestinian neighborhood of Jabel Mukaber, Christina, from a nearby boarding school, Vlad, from the Katamonim Quarter, and Akiva, from the settlement of Beit-El. Together, they travel to championships all over the country. Gershon teaches them self-confidence, wisdom and how to treat opponents with respect, even in the heat of a fight. The will to excel and win is fed by the intense.
