Plot

The film focuses on a young Mexican-American named Tommy (Lalo Rios). resident in Los Angeles´s neighborhood. He feels unable to progress in American society, dominated by white Anglophones. Therefore, to achieve popularity, he decides to become a boxer, thus achieving fame and honor. But when he believes he has earned the respect of the "Anglos", he discovers that they are only interested in his reputation, because they still consider him an outsider because of their ancestry and skin colour. Only two white men treat him decently: his manager Pete (Gerald Mohr) and trainer Freddy (Robert Osterloh). However, they also have a personal interest in him. The manager quits due to disappointment over Tommy's unconditional love for Lucy (Rita Moreno), the daughter of a punch-drunk bum.
