My Kingdom Come (A Nosotros Tu Reino) is the story of Simón González, the acclaimed wold champion kickboxer who is now facing his 14th match: to walk again.
Simón González (Ourense, Spain, 1964) is one of the greatest athletes Spain has given. A man from humble origins who found inspiration in elite sports, he is a living international kickboxing legend. His legacy: thirteen kickboxing world championships titles.
After being the king of the kickboxing world, Simón suffered a home accident that put him in a wheel chair. Far from hanging on to pain, Simón turned to those around him to find the strength to walk again. The film follows his journey as he gets admitted to a treatment that promises to regenerate his spinal cord, getting him closer to his dream of being in the ring once again.
The documentary is narrated in 7 chapters that define Simón’s life: Prelude, The Lion Doesn’t Walk Alone, Soldier Without Homeland, The Wizard And The Warrior, The Promised Land, My Kingdom For A Horse, and Encore.
In Spanish with English subtitles.
