From abject poverty to becoming a ten time boxing world champion and history's first boxing congressman, international icon Manny Pacquiao's tale is the definition of a Cinderella story.

Now, almost twenty years later, when he fights, the country of 100 million people comes to a complete standstill to watch.
Today at the height of his career, he is faced with manoeuvring an unscrupulous sport and political duties, while still maintaining a personal life. The question now is what bridge is too far for Manny Pacquiao to cross?

Get ready to stand up and fight for what you believe in as the definitive story of a legendary fighter, legislator, singer, global ambassador, father, spiritualist and husband comes to Blu-ray and DVD on 17th November 2014.
