SynopsisEdit

While traveling through Wilmington (Delaware), David befriends Henry "Rocky" Welsh—an aspiring boxer—and his young girlfriend. David discovers that his new friend doesn't have much of a chance to succeed as a prize fighter and that Henry is actually being tricked into trafficking heroin by a seedy boxing promoter.
