A boxer cast aside as a washed-up has-been mounts an inspirational comeback campaign against the backdrop of the Great Depression.
Unhappy and "broken down", once-promising professional boxer James J. Braddock sees his career fall to pieces not unlike the average American's fortunes during the Great Depression, facing an inability to pay the bills and provide for his family brought about by a lack of desire to fight. Motivated by all the little things in life money can't quantify, Braddock re-entered the ring to ride an unlikely wave of inexplicable success all the way to a two-year reign as world heavyweight champion, a true-life saga dramatized for the silver screen in Cinderella Man.
