Johar Abu Lashin could have been an international boxing superstar, had he not been born an Israeli Arab in Nazareth. The Israeli flag he waved when he won the world title the first time, and the Palestinian flag he later waved upon winning it again, turned a rising star’s promising career into a tragic story of one man’s split identity at the heart of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The film follows Abu Lashin’s most recent comeback efforts: from his horse ranch in Tennessee, through an epic, global fight in Nazareth, and all the way to the greatest fight of his life against Yasser Arafat himself, whom he plans to take on in Gaza.
