It is 1940. The first transport of prisoners arrives at the newly created
concentration camp Auschwitz. One of them is Tadeusz “Teddy” Pietrzykowski,
pre-war boxing champion of Warsaw. The camp officers force him to fight in
the ring for his and other prisoners’ lives. However, his every win
strengthens the hope that Nazis are not invincible. Auschwitz officers
notice the growing resistance. The confrontation with the authorities of
the camp becomes inevitable.
