Boxer Landry Kore moved from the Ivory Coast to Denmark when he was a child in hopes of a better life. But what happens when you move to a culture that is so different from your own at such a pivotal stage in life? Landry talks about the challenges he faced when he was suddenly on his own, far away from family and friends and familiarity, in a place that felt completely foreign to him. He talks about how he eventually felt a sense of belonging when he got into boxing and found something to feel attached to after a period of feeling detached from everything. It is a story of transition, passion and perseverance but it is also a story of a man who is reflecting on the life he once had, the importance of the deep connection he feels to his roots, the pride and encouragement he feels when he visits the Ivory Coast - and lastly how dreams may wary depending on your life situation.
