Billy defies his parents and makes a secret trip from Long Island to Philadelphia to sneak his grandfather out of a nursing home and bring him home for the holidays. The home's inhabitants distract the staff so Billy and his confused Grandfather can make their escape. They cross path with a street gang whose leader chases them. They're given a hiding place by a concerned homeless man Buzzard Bracken, but their sanctuary is only temporary, as the gang invades the homeless camp and captures them.
The story starts in the present(relatively) in 1989 when Larry Holmes is knocked out by Tyson at Caesars Palace. After an interview with Holmes, we are taken right back to the beginning as Cassius Clay wins the Olympic gold medal(1960). As expected, Muhammad Ali is the main focus(having been the only one to fight every other boxer present). However I didn't feel that anyone had been left out. Having watched this video I have a new found respect for all of the fighters.
