Summary:
Bullied by her father at home and feeling adrift at school, Diana Guzman finds refuge in an unexpected pocket of her native Brooklyn, a timeworn boxing gym, where she learns to channel her strength, discovers a sense of community, and falls for a rival fighter. In Karyn Kusama's raw, understated feature debut, Rodriguez commands the screen with both tightly coiled intensity and deep wells of vulnerability as a young woman hitting back at society's expectations and her own personal demons. Capturing the full emotional weight of Diana's journey and the kinetic thrill of bodies in motion, Kusama crafts a singularly uncompromising story of self-realization.
