Inhalt

Elephant Heart

Once you′re in, you gotta win. Marco was born into a world that never really left him much of a chance. The young man is the offspring of a low social class, broken family living in the ugly suburban environment of a German ex-coalminer′s city. Stepping into the ring and striking the final, angry punch is Marco′s only escape. Wild, uncontrollable and uncompromising. He puts himself onto a roller coaster of violence, crime and a mystery, buried deep in his very own past when he signs a deal to become a professional boxer. Marco′s life will never be the same again.
