Tapia takes us inside the tortured soul of Johnny Tapia, the five-time world champion boxer whose unprecedented success was overshadowed by drug addiction brought on by the brutal rape and murder of his mother when he was only eight years old.  Director Eddie Alcazar candidly reveals Tapia's public struggles through intimate interviews, archival footage, and photos showcasing his vivacious personality and following his rise to one of the most legendary fighters of our time, both in and out of the ring.
