SYNOPSIS

In the South Africa township of Khayelitsha, a young female boxer confronts the spectre of gender-based violence by immersing herself in the world of boxing, seeking empowerment and courage in the face of pervasive fear. Training at a local gym known for nurturing young talent, she embarks on a transformative journey of self-discovery and resilience. Through sweat, determination, and the solidarity of her fellow boxers, she emerges as a beacon of hope and inspiration, embodying the unwavering spirit of triumph over adversity.
