In the short documentary film The Conqueror, professional boxer Jerome Conquest tells the story of losing his best friend to street violence at the age of 17. This tragic loss inspires Conquest to stop fighting in the streets and to get in the boxing ring (Joe Hand Boxing Gym). Now a maintenance worker by day and a pro boxer by night, Conquest shines a light for his community, Strawberry Mansion (North Philadelphia), showing that dreams can be realized even in dire circumstances.
