Miguel “Bayoneta” Galíndez is a retired boxer from Tijuana who —for mysterious reasons— finds himself living in a cramped flat in the town of Turku, Finland. Throughout the day he works as a trainer in a boxing gym and at night he drinks alone. A need for redemption will lead him to prove himself once again as a fighter. During such process, he will be forced to come to terms with his past and whatever pushed him away from boxing and his family.
