Description: Struggling sports reporter Erik Kernan encounters a homeless man who calls himself "Champ"--only to determine that he is boxing legend Battling Bob Satterfield who was believed to have passed away long ago. Soon, reporting Champ's story becomes Erik's title shot. What begins as the young journalist's opportunity to revive Champ's story--and come out from under the shadow of both his wife and his father's success--becomes a very personal and life-altering journey, as it forces Erik to reexamine his own life and his relationship with his young son.
