31 March 2011 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie yesterday in Berlin - and was truly and pleasantly surprised. Considering, that this is the first movie made in Nicaragua in 20 years, I was expecting this lack of experience and critical mass to show more. It did not.

The story is simple: Yuma, is a young Nicaraguan woman, living in one of Managua's gang-infested barrios, with her four siblings, a parasite step-father and a mother, who would never win a parent of the year award.

Yuma sees female boxing as a ticket out out for both her and her younger siblings..

When she falls in love with a journalism Student form the Catholic University of Managua, her life becomes, well, complicated.....

This movie is worth seeing for the description of life in a Central American slum, the humor, and a story full of real life.
