Overview

“Heart, Baby!” is the incredible TRUE STORY of a young black man named George Lee Martin (Gbenga Akinnagbe, The Wire), who at the age of 18 received a 40-year sentence for robbing a house in TN. While on the “inside”, George became known as an unbeatable prison boxer with the support of his best friend/cornerman, Doc (Jackson Rathbone, The Twilight Saga), and his white transgender female cellmate, Crystal (Shawn-Caulin Young, Thor, Godless). Word of his talents quickly spread to a USA Boxing coach who offered George the chance for freedom and Olympic gold in exchange for fighting for the United States in the 1984 Summer Games. Surprisingly, George turned down this amazing offer for the one thing he couldn’t live without. The film reveals the remarkable true story of a fighter who ended up winning far more than Olympic gold.
