What happens when boxing is the best career path for a 12-year-old Indian boy?

Bhiwani Junction follows Himanshu Nain, a 12-year-old aspiring boxer who trains at the well-regarded Bhiwani Boxing Club. Intelligent, soft-spoken and small, Himanshu is a skilled athlete who is extraordinarily dedicated to his training. Although he hasn’t ‘seen anything anywhere’ – not even images of the US on television – he dreams of winning an Olympic medal, or at least landing a stable government job through the sport.
