El Chata

A film by Gustavo Ramos Perales


Although Samuel has plenty of talent to be a boxing champion, he seems destined to receive blows like a punching bag. Now at thirty, he has to become a sparring partner because nobody is willing to give him a chance. Joe, his former coach, who is training a new prospect, decides to put him to test. Unable to feed his family and with temptations all over him, what he can only think about is getting back on the ring and prove himself and everybody else, that time in prison has changed him, and that he is determined to recover his family and win back his son affection. Back now in the neighborhood, life doesn’t let him take off his gloves off, not for a second. While the possibility of migrating is seen as a rebirth, Samuel knows that no matter where you go, the neighborhood is always within you.
