    Welterweight prizefighting champion Emile Griffith soars to celebrity status yet ends up in solitude after accidentally killing his opponent in the ring.

    Composed by one of today’s greatest jazzmen—trumpeter Terence Blanchard—, this is a moving account of a forbidden love in mid-20th century American society.
