The documentary covers Dunnes return home to Ireland following a three-year apprenticeship in the U.S. under boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard and renowned trainer Freddie Roach.
The Dubliner quickly became a household name in Ireland, reeling off a string of impressive victories before challenging for the European title at a sold-out Point Theatre in his native city. On an emotion-charged night, Dunne become champion of Europe with a career-best performance, and two successful defences followed.
However, Dunnes world fell apart at the hands of Kiko La Sensacin Martinez, with the Spanish wrecking ball ripping Dunnes title away in just 86 seconds.
Since then, though, Dunne has picked up the pieces and rebuilt his career with three straight wins as he moves toward the ultimate prize a world title fight in 2009.
Big Time tells that story with incredible highs, wounding lows and fearless ambition, all set against the tough and at times cruel backdrop of professional boxing.
