Fists of Pride
In a boxing camp on the Thai-Burmese border, the children of mostly illegal migrant workers fleeing Burma live and train for prize fights. Fists of Pride follows Little Tiger and his fellow fighters as their Thai coaches prepare them for the annual Water Festival competition. The film reveals their daily struggles in a region where combat sports have always been a matter of honour and money. Bets are open, and as their hope of winning prize money grows, the young boxers contemplate what a victory could mean for them and their family.
