TALENTED teen Gary Marshall is banking on sporting prowess to rescue him from the mean London estates where violence is a constant threat.
Streetwise Arnie Dolan has a simpler solution: form the toughest gang and fight your way out of the poverty trap.
Their unlikely friendship spawns the Boxer Boys, a bond of close-knit brothers-in-arms committed to defend each other against those wishing to invade their territory.
Yet for both boys, hidden dangers lurk closer to home and when a series of shocking events shatter both their dreams, it isn’t until eight years later that Arnie attempts to rekindle their seemingly unbreakable bond.
So where is Gary? And why is he so determined to let the past stay in the past?
