As spring arrives in the tiny village of Ste. Justine, the boys' thoughts turn from hockey to the town's annual, and informal, boxing tournament. Roch is beaten by the Cote brothers again, strong farmer's lads, and he decides next year will be different. He orders barbells to build up his muscles, training all winter long, and dreams about finally winning the tournament after enduring years of humiliation. He will not be beaten this year. He will be a champion. When the day for the tournament arrives, Roch wins - in a way.
