Follows a year in the life of a young couple struggling to get by in New York City, split into sections for each of the four seasons. Trevor is a low-level boxer making small earnings from fights but slowly working his way up, at the price of the increasingly dangerous tolls the physicality of the sport have on his body. Jacquelyn is a hardworking waitress, but finds herself caught up in the world of prostitution in an attempt to bring in more income. Through thick and thin, they fight physical, economic, and social adversity in the name of their love for one another.
