DESCRIPTION

Benjamin, a boy bullied for his Jewish faith, takes up boxing as a means of self-defence, alienating himself from his religious community. As an adult pushed to the fringes, his desperation to provide for his family becomes the catalyst for a devastating series of events that ensures he may never find the acceptance he has always craved.

AN ALLEGORICAL DRAMA ABOUT DEALING WITH GRIEF AND ACCEPTANCE.
