In the wake of recent events such as the ongoing refugee crisis and the election of anti-immigrant politicians across the globe, Rabbit Punch tells the tale of Job, a teenage boy who has come to Manchester, UK from the Congo. However, his search for a new life comes at a price. Brutalised at home and bullied at school, his only answer is to lash out at the world around him. When a chance encounter leads him to his local boxing club, his life takes an unexpected turn for the better. Coaches Trav and Dylan, are intrigued by this lightening fast boy and take him under their wing but can they help him to escape his past?
