    • The subject of the film is an Austin, Texas institution, Lord’s Gym, which was founded sixteen years ago byRichard Lord, a former professional boxer. A wide variety of people of all ages, races, ethnicities and social classesntrain at the gym: men, women, children, doctors, lawyers,
      judges, business men and women, immigrants, professional
      boxers and people who want to become professional
      boxers alongside amateurs who love the sport
      and teenagers who are trying to develop strength and assertiveness. The gym is an example of the American “melting pot” where people meet, talk, and train.
