""I was slaughtered to please the croud!""


The film focuses on the story of 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 in United States, he decides to become a boxer, thus achieving fame and honor. However, 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 manages to end to Tommy´s work due to disappointment that he feel by to unconditional love that the young begins to feel for Lucy (Rita Moreno), the daughter of Punch-Drunk bum.
