Brandon (13) and his best friend Stefano live in a multicultural working-class neighborhood. They find comfort and brotherhood with a local gang and rise quickly in the street hierarchy by carrying out dangerous tasks. But when Brandon gets caught breaking into a dojo by Kai, a former judo champion and owner of the dojo, he demands that Brandon join his judo school to avoid arrest. In the dojo, Brandon discovers the peaceful philosophy behind judo, which gives him the peace and discipline that his life lacks. Can Brandon break free from the ruthless street life?
