    • DIRECTOR’S STATEMENT

      Punch of life presents a story of redemption. A man burdened by the mistakes of his father and his own, unexpectedly finds a vocation, a mission in life. Virtually blindly he stumbles upon his fellow man, inevitably represented in that group of young athletes so in need of guidance, love and attention. In this way, the man, who is a summary of many others, begins to create alternatives for change that lead him to aspire and fight for all the best that he can deliver to those many children that destiny has placed in his path.

      Golpe de Vida presenta una historia de redención. Un hombre agobiado por los errores de su padre y los suyos propios, encuentra sin esperarlo una vocación, una misión en la vida. Prácticamente a ciegas se tropieza con su semejante, inevitablemente representado en ese grupo de jóvenes atletas tan necesitados de orientación, amor y atención. De esa forma el hombre, que es un resumen de muchos otros, comienza a crear alternativas de cambio que lo conducen a aspirar y luchar por todo lo mejor que puede entregar a esos numerosos hijos que el destino a puesto en su camino.
