About Film

Julius is a broken, down-on-his-luck ex-­boxer, in search of redemption. Munachi is a pretty, bubbly young girl with a dark secret.
Their chance meeting on a park bench in Oxford Gardens one summer afternoon sets in motion an unlikely friendship and an uplifting journey through their respective fears; and through hope, faith and love; to a stoic acceptance of whatever life throws at them.
