Geto Balboa

Árpád Bogdán, Hungary, 2018, 90'

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. Zoli Szabó (21) is one of these kids. He has been boxing in the amateur league under Misi’s guidance for 6 years. Zoli lives in a one bedroom apartment with his dad, stepmother, half sister and his fiance, who is already pregnant.
