The Finnish boxer Olli Mäki has a shot at the 1962 World Featherweight title. Immensely talented and equally modest, Olli's small town life is transformed when he is swept into national stardom and suddenly regarded as a symbol of his country. There's only one problem: Olli has just fallen in love. Olli Mäki will be a legend, but not through a victory.
