No videogames or McDonald’s after school: no matter how painstaking the training, these young gymnasts never give up. Each comes from a different background with a different temperament, the only common thing between them is -- they never quit. As one puts it, "I must endure the pain! I must persevere no matter how hard it is, no matter how many times I fall or how much it hurts." An often humorous study of the relationship between the coach and his charges, JUMP! BOYS also offers insight into the broader world of sports in Taiwan.
