Davey Gordon is a 29 years old boxer. Unfortunately, he loses all his chances to become one day a world champion by being knocked-out by a much younger boxer and so is seriously considering to go back to the family ranch in Oregon. But, the same night, he witnesses a fight between his neighbour Gloria and Vincent Rapallo, a 60 years old man owning a local private dance hall. He helps Gloria to recover and soon both fall in love with each other. They decide to leave NYC for the pure air of Oregon. While Davey is waiting for his manager Jerry Jarret in front of the dance hall, Gloria confronts a jealous Vincent who doesn't want to lose her. Vincent's men kill by mistake Jerry and kidnap Gloria. Davey will have to save her.

Very interesting movie with already anthology scenes such as the final fight between Davey And Vincent.
