His abusive father already exploits him in illegal matches, keeping for himself whatever money Abner makes from it. Personal support comes Abner’s way from his sister Silvana, best friend Wilo and girlfriend Paulina. Local physician Dr. Frank Irwin, a caring influence in the neighborhood, also takes an active interest in guiding the lad off the streets. Frank’s son is Jimmy ‘the Dream’ Irwin, who is himself trying to make a boxing mark in American despite getting a little too old for the sport and nursing a broken hand. At Silvana’s intercession, Jimmy begins training Abner at the local gym while beginning to fall for his sister. Just as things are looking good for Abner’s chances, tragedy strikes, threatening to derail everyone’s efforts to see him leave the ghetto.
Plot: Abner is trapped in the rough life of Mexico City. His escape? Boxing. Dr. Frank Irwin (Martin Sheen) and his son Jimmy, a pro boxer, come together to teach Abner that the heart fuels the punches we throw in life.

Saw The Kid Chamaco in theaters. Very strong moving film that takes place in the immense city of Mexico City. The city is almost a character in the film. For those that know they clearly shot it all over the entire city.
Strong acting from both US and Mexican actors. One of my favorite actors is in the film in Gustavo Sanchez Parra. He is amazing in Amores Perros and many others.
Music in film is for the most part good. If there was any part of the film that may have been improved it would be the music over some of the boxing.
This is clearly one of the best boxing films ever made for the sport being shown as it is rather than fake “ala Rocky”. For boxing fans four time world champion Marco Antonio Barrera is in the film and even one of the lead actors in the film Kirk Harris was a top amateur fighter. Other fighters in the cast include Daniel Evangelista. OK, so it becomes obvious I’m a huge fan of boxing, but the film still has something for everyone.
Martin Sheen fan
I rented this title at Blockbuster as a big fan of Martin Sheen. Apocalypse Now will forever be my favorite film. I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised by the film. I’m not one for subtitled films, however the bilingual nature of this film was done so smoothly. A heartfelt story of a doctor living in Mexico City whose long lost shows up out of the blue – causing them to rebuild their relationship via the helping of a young boy they both take an interest in. The son is a down on his luck boxer whose faded glory has brought him to see his dad for help. A teenager the doctor is already helping is trying to become a boxer. Indeed a simple story yet done so well. The boxing is really really good in this film. I also really enjoyed life on the streets in Mexico City. The performances are really strong. And, of course if you are a Martin Sheen fan like me it is incredible to watch this man take on a character who speaks Spanish half of the time with such depth. Not unlike the Irish film “Da” where he took on another aspect of his roots.
