The city of Merida in Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula has been home to five world boxing champions. This dynamic, elegantly-made and colourful documentary relates the tales of triumph and rivalry, and seeks out the survivors - many of them still living where history left them. With magnificent characters, vibrant storytelling and a briskly knowledgeable take on its subject, this is an expertly made and thoroughly enjoyable account. 'Part of the Edinburgh International Film Festival'.
