DIRECTOR'S STATEMENT

This film explores the untold truth, the hidden mysteries, and the humble beginnings of one of the greatest boxers of all time — Emmanuel "Manny" Pacquiao. It is a prequel to his life before he conquered the world.

After years of intensive research, I am finally able to tell the story of how this world champion came to be. I want people to see how he fought through all the pain and adversity to become the global icon that he is today.

The film is meant to inspire everyone. I want people to believe that with faith, determination, and unrelenting passion, we can accomplish almost anything. There are no excuses.
