When a struggling sports writer with dreams of big-time stories rescues a homeless man from an attack by a gang of street thugs, he unwittingly finds himself with a one-time boxing legend believed to be dead. Discovering Bob “The Champ” Satterfield is actually alive could be the story of a lifetime and the title shot the young journalist has been waiting for.

What begins as an opportunity to bring back to life the memory of a boxing great turns into an incredible journey and a chance for the ambitious reporter to examine his own life and relationship with his family. Inspired by the 1997 Los Angeles Times Magazine article written by J.R. Moehringer and directed by acclaimed filmmaker Rod Lurie.

Rated PG-13 for some violence and brief language.

Box office gross: $2.8 million. View box office history.
