Synopsis
Without Ali, I would not stand where I'm standing now!´, says Raschad, one of the protégés of boxing trainer Ali Cukur. Week after week, young people like Raschad, Saskia and Burak meet in a small gymnasium of TSV 1860. Many of them have already gone through quite a lot in their lives. For them, Ali is a role model, a father, a lifesaver. He relocates his annual boxing camp to Ghana. Confronted with the tough circumstances under which the Ghanaian boxers are training in the slums of Accra, the youths start to view their life in Germany from a new angle.
