  • Synopsis: New York City, March 24, 1962: Rival boxing champions Emile Griffith and Benny "Kid" Paret entered the ring for their feverishly anticipated world title bout. Earlier, Paret had taunted his allegedly homosexual opponent with a shocking slur. That night, as millions of fans watched the fight on live television, Griffith brutally beat Paret to death. The sport of boxing, the life of Emile Griffith, and the innocence of America would be changed forever. In this haunting documentary, filmmakers Dan Klores and Ron Berger capture a provocative saga of love, violence and redemption that transcends the ring. Through startling archival footage and revealing new interviews with jounalists, historians, champion boxers, Paret's widow, and Griffith himself, experience the Sundance sensation that begins with one tragic night nearly 45 years ago and ends with the heartbreaking modern day meeting between Emile Griffith and Benny Paret's now-grown son.
