A talented young boxer emerges from the wreckage of the Blitz and the Second World War: Jack Peters has a great natural ability, spotted early on by trainer Eddie Millighan, who takes him under his wing. Soon Eddie's whole family are drawn in to Jack's life, as Jack becomes as close to him as the son he never had. But it gradually becomes apparent that Jack's unstoppable drive to win is masking another agenda - the burning desire for revenge. As Eddie dedicates himself to building Jack into a champion, will Jack find the peace of mind that has eluded him for so long? This action-packed tale is also a warm, human story of how wartime experiences shape a winner.
