Crying Fist

Fortnight 2005, Feature film, 2h15


Taes-shik, a one-time champion amateur boxer, now earns his living by standing out in the street and inviting passersby to use him as a punching bag for money. All that he has left is his wife, who wants a divorce, and his son, the only light of his life. Debt-ridden, with nothing else to lose, the old boxer decides to go after the amateur xoxing title. Sand-hwan is violent and rebellious young misfit doing time for theft. At the prison’s boxing club, he feels he can accomplish something for the first time in his life.
