After eight years in prison, 30-year-old Samuel has decided to go straight. People around him do not forgive his mistakes though and hardly remember him as the talented boxer he once was. His former coach is training a new generation and all he can offer Samuel is to become their sparring partner, their chata. But the underground club “Papillon” is not really the ideal place for a peaceful reinsertion.
