When they are evicted from their home, struggling Bronx auto mechanic Jaden Miller (Kent Moran) will do everything in his power to save he and his mother (S. Epatha Merkerson) from living on the streets. With the help of legendary trainer, Duane Taylor (Michael Clarke Duncan), Miller soon finds that boxing is their ticket to a better life. Earning the title ‘Bronx Boy,’ Miller becomes a local hero.
