In the sports documentary film Fight, a high school teacher gets his students to get into a boxing ring and fight each other. The teacher's approach to helping troubled kids depends on the assumption that fighting in the ring is better than misbehaving outside it. The film was produced in Canada.

We watch him work with two Indigenous teens from troubled backgrounds as they slowly come to understand that boxing is more than just a sport… it's a way of life.
