“The only fight he lost was the one against himself.” This tragic love story is based on the life of two-time World Boxing Champion Edwin “El Inca” Valero (Alexander Leterni). Accompanied by his wife to rings around the world, the charismatic fighter from the Venezuelan Andes defeats all rivals with devastating knockouts. But while his professional life soars, his personal life starts to stagger, as Edwin establishes a relationship with another woman and becomes trapped in insecurity and an increasing drug addiction.
