Cast: Michelle Rodriguez, Jaime Tirelli, Santiago Douglas


When her father refuses to let her train as a boxer, a teenage girl (Michelle Rodriguez) takes up the sport herself, and soon becomes the first female champion at her local gym. As she fights against both sexes in the featherweights class, complications follow when her friendship with fellow boxer Adrian (Douglas) blossoms into a sweet romance.

As she becomes physically stronger and more self-assured she is suddenly confident enough to allow herself to become vulnerable - a burden that weighs heavily on her as she prepares for the most important fight for her life.
