Synopsis

A short documentary that tells the story of street-smart and charismatic Khali Sweeney, who scraped together enough money to convert an old car wash into a bare-bones boxing gym. His mission was to give youth from the mean streets of Eastside Detroit a safe place to receive boxing training and tutoring services. Today, as he moves into a state-of-the-art facility with 300 youth, he can be proud of the 100 percent high school graduation rate of his participants and the national champions he has produced.
