In school, his classmates tease him for not being circumcised and for not having a father. Unknown to Diday, Kiko frequently visits the abandoned house of his father George (Yul Servo), a retired boxer.
In the said house, Kiko trains himself in boxing using the boxing equipment his father had left behind. One day, George returned home and saw his son.
