Poor Boy's Game is a 2007 drama from director Clement Virgo. After serving nine years for paralyzing his black opponent in the boxing ring, former-racist Donnie Rose (Rossif Sutherland) walks out of prison, made a different man through an affair with a black cellmate. Though eager to put his past behind him, he returns to his family in a racially torn neighborhood in Halifax, Nova Scotia. There he finds his crime is anything but forgotten. Donnie struggles to adapt to his newfound racial attitudes around his prejudiced brother Keith (Greg Bryk) and others in his community. Worse yet, he is targeted for retribution by a black community rallied around the family of the young man he injured, including local boxing talent, Ossie Paris (Flex Alexander). When challenged to a grudge match he cannot refuse, Donnie finds help, in all places, from his victim's father, George (Danny Glover), a man also looking to get over the past.
