Boxing World was deeply saddened over the death of Alexis Vastine, a bright star of French boxing and an Olympic bronze runner-up from the 2008 games in Beijing, China, on March 9, 2015, in the Argentinean helicopter crash. The shipwreck resulted in nine deaths, including Florence Arthaud, widely celebrated as a sailor and Camille Muffat, a medalist at the 2012 Olympics.

It happened when Alain’s family already was mourning over the same tragedy that was also too painful to undergo for him. And his daughter who was named Célie died in 3rd January, 2015, in a car accident.

However, Alain is not considering these casualties as something that makes him feel bad. In fact, a boxing sport that helped him to find a special connection within the family is his solace towards the unapprehensible losses he is encountering.

The picture includes him in Argentina, his son’s homeland, flip-flopping between rigorous training and flashbacks. “When I do this, he tells the documentary, I felt that I was good because I never abandoned my roots.” “Actually I feel this is my second family.” Through boxing, Alain is able to have a way to link whatever is left of his son and never lose him as a spirit.
