The true underdog
success story of Irish boxer Francis Barrett is told in this inspirational
documentary that covers his attempt to qualify for the 1996 Olympics. The
upbeat and appealing Barrett must overcome the poverty he was raised in as
well as the prejudice against "Travellers," the Irish Gypsy community
scorned by many others in the country. An honest and engrossing tribute to
an unlikely athletic hero.
