Product Description:

SOUTHPAW chronicles the uplifting story of Francis Barrett, the Irish boxer who overcame prejudice to fight in the 1996 Olympics. Barrett grew up as a Traveller--a lower-class community of Irish individuals who live off the land, without electricity or running water. Even amidst these seemingly primitive conditions, Francis never lost his faith in himself. This extreme dedication resulted in his landing the coveted position of flag carrier for the Republic of Ireland at the 1996 Games. Inspiring and uplifting, SOUTHPAW proves that human determination can overcome any odds.

Description by Image Entertainment:

This inspiring tale looks at the incredible life of a young Irishman who surmounts poverty and prejudice to become a boxing champion and national hero. Francis Barrett grows up in a cluttered trailer park without electricity and running water among the "Travellers," a poor group of gypsies scorned by the rest of Irish society. Determined and naively optimistic, Barrett trains with the local barber in a sadly underequipped amateur boxing club. Against all odds, Francis achieves his dream of participating in the 1996 Olympics and becomes the first Traveller ever to represent Ireland! A refreshingly honest and unflinching tribute to an unlikely hero.
