An Afghan teenager who has emigrated with her parents to Iran strives to pursue her dream of becoming a professional Muay Thai boxer. And she is determined not to let the conservative mindset of her family, her experience of physical abuse nor the anti-immigrant hostility of those around her stop her. Working day and night, she finances her boxing classes without her parents’ knowledge. Through this sport, she hopes not only to succeed in the ring but also to overcome the difficulties of life.
