    Golden Gloves portrays amateur boxers, between the ages of 15 and 28, who all have the same ambition: to win the Golden Gloves Trophy. This competition is held each year in Quebec. Victory is an important step on the road to success. The motivation to take part varies, but all have a desire to escape the daily routine. The film shows divergent characters: Ronald is aggressive and aware of his limitations, Clement is lost in a world not made for him, George became involved by accident.
