Tommy Mutch is a working-class lad from the slums of West London, eager to escape the mean streets of Notting Dale. Boxing is in its 1930s heyday and, like many in his position, Tommy sees it as an escape route from poverty. As a 'preliminary' boy on the verge of making the breakthrough this is more than just a dream, but he hasn't bargained for the obstacles he has to face outside the ring, like crooked promoters, hucksters, pimps, prostitutes and small-time gangsters. Tommy has strong morals and a fierce sense of justice, but these are about to be put to the test.
