Albert Brooks is a high school dropout. His job in a small Harlem grocery store feels like a dead end. Friends are drifting into drug addition and robbery. Each day Albert's options shrink alittle more. His future is growing dimmer -until he walks into Donatelli's Gym. Standing before a short stocky man with a hard face and knowing eyes, Albert dares to dream. He tells the veteran trainer that he wants to be a boxer, a champion. but before long he will understand Mr. Donatelli's answer: Its the climbing that makes the man. Getting to the top is an extra reward".
