FULL SYNOPSIS

[[Performer~P66622~Jimmy Smits~jimmysmits]] returned to the big screen after a career-reviving stint on the TV series [[Feature~V216959~NYPD Blue~nypdblue[tvseries]]] with this emotional drama about the difficult relationship between a father and his sons. [[Performer~P66622~Smits~jimmysmits]] plays Arturo Ortega, a man with lifelong dreams of being a contender in professional boxing. While Arturo had the knowledge, drive, and ambition to be a champ, his career proved short-lived, and, after a brief fling with success, he's a forgotten man. However, Arturo has instilled his passion for boxing in his three sons, who grow up learning the fine art of prizefighting. All three boys begin competing in the ring, with Arturo as their manager and coach, but Johnny ([[Performer~P64271~Jon Seda~jonseda]]) quickly shows so much promise that other managers and promoters want to take over his contract and put him on the fast track to the championship. Arturo feels betrayed when Johnny wants to work with another manager, while his other two sons resent Johnny for turning his back on his father and wish Arturo had the same belief in their talents in the ring. The debut feature from director [[Performer~P275855~Carlos Avila~carlosavila]] and screenwriter [[Performer~P275856~Phil Berger~philberger]], Price of Glory also features [[Performer~P195695~Maria Del Mar~mariadelmar]], [[Performer~P56093~Ron Perlman~ronperlman]], [[Performer~P61029~Paul Rodriguez~paulrodriguez]], and [[Performer~P272681~Clifton Collins Jr.~cliftoncollinsjr]]. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
