The documentary follows a boxing coach and his trainee from the very beginning to the first successes. Both characters are of Roma origins from the infamous Ghetto in the middle of Budapest. Misi Sipos (60), an ex member of the 8th district mafia, while recovering in a prison hospital after a shootout with a rival gang, turned to God and left behind his criminal past. As his personal “mission” he started a local community boxing club aimed at young children from troubled families, to keep them away from crime and show them an alternative for their future.
If you have the time, love documentaries, watching movies and discussing with other people, then this is your chance to spend an extraordinary evening at “Cafe Peyka” with other people with similar interests.
The original language of the movie is Hungarian, we have English and Bulgarian subtitles.
