After serving over three years in prison for his involvement in an early 1990s armed robbery, Mexican-born Jesus "El Matador" Chavez embarked on a promising boxing career. But a 1996 federal crackdown on convicted illegal immigrants saw Chavez, who was raised in the U.S., deported and sent home to a country he'd never seen. This compelling documentary chronicles Chavez's ongoing struggle with the INS and his eventual status as WBC Super Featherweight World Champion. 58 min. Standard; Soundtracks: English, Spanish; Subtitles: English; theatrical trailers; interviews; more.
