    • Synopsis
    • The feature-length documentary tells the captivating story of the boxing world’s most famous brothers:
      from the socialist drill of their childhood in the Ukraine and their first successes as amateurs to their move to Germany and their rise as international stars on the verge of holding the championship titles of all five boxing federations. Along the way they experience defeats and setbacks, low points and triumphant comebacks as well as conflicts with each other. Exciting conversations with companions and opponents, including the very first with the Klitschkos’ parents, give insight in their personal lives and
      never-before-seen footage of the draining preparations for a fight and the spectacular boxing matches.
      Director Sebastian Dehnhardt composes an intimate and fascinating portrait of two exceptional athletes who are, before all else, brothers.
