Orthodox Stance

Documentary about Dmitriy Salita, a Russian immigrant, a professional boxer and a religious Jew. To overcome the loss of his mother, Dmitriy dedicated himself to boxing and to battle his fear of the ring, Dmitriy turned to God. The film shows Dmitriy growing up among the seemingly incompatible communities of boxing and Orthodox Judaism, and the cultures and characters working together to support his rare and remarkable devotion to both religion and the pursuit of a professional boxing title.
