Captures Your Attention
14 January 2015 | by hannsoloSee all my reviews

This documentary begins with contagious hope as we, the viewers, discover the enthusiasm that drives these girls to take on boxing. As the film continues to follow the girls as they prepare for various competitions, though, the challenges that they face are little by little uncovered. This movies explores more than just the difficulties of competition. It also exposes the fear, the social challenges, and the economic difficulties that the girls need to face in order to continue boxing.

This documentary is cleverly done, and captures its audience in a way that few documentaries do. The fantastic storytelling, however, comes at the expense of offering the audience more information.
