Inspired by a TV documentary made by the same director, the film is based on a true story of children ages 13-15 being exploited by a powerful syndicate managing a betting game involving underground fighting.
Al and Jun, fraternal twin brothers, earn a living by doing the oddest stints while their grandmother manages to raise them despite their extreme poverty.
In dire need to earn extra money, the brothers engage into clandestine fistfight matches. As the brothers fight their way to success, the sudden return of their estranged father abruptly turns things upside down.
