During the darkest years of the Great Depression, Braddock (Crowe) takes on various dead end jobs as a means to support his wife, Mae (Zellweger) and their children, but he never forgets his dream of boxing again. Then, due to a last minute cancellation, Braddock finds himself once again in the boxing ring, facing the second-ranked world contender, and to everyone's astonishment beats him in the 3rd round. Braddock continues on a string of successes, despite being pounds lighter than his opponents and suffering excessive damage to his hands. Nicknamed "Cinderella Man", he finally comes to face his toughest challenger yet, Max Baer (Bierko), the heavyweight champion of the world, renowned for killing two men in the ring. Looking for nothing more than to provide for his family, Braddock was a great man whose commitment to them spurred him on, ultimately elevating him to legend status.
