A morality tale, “the good boy” is a film about a young boxer who accepts a challenge to fight a brute of a man only to discover his opponent has the mental capacity of a five year old. This is an unflinching look at what happens when you feel honor bound to doing something you know is morally wrong. “the good boy” is about the decisions we make and living with their consequences.
