Thulasi is a young woman who was born a "Dalit," or "untouchable" in the Indian caste system. Her early years were a struggle for survival but now she is willing to literally fight for a better life through boxing.
At 25, Thulasi has only one year to qualify for a government programme, a lifeline which offers a good job and better future. But her boxing club is run by corrupt coaches who regularly abuse the young boxers. Thulasi will have to overcome more obstacles than just winning the tournament if she is to achieve her goals.
This powerful documentary from Beathe Hofseth and Susann Østigaard reveals the brutal underbelly of amateur sports and the treatment of women in India. Following Thulasi for three years it documents the ups and downs of this inspirational woman’s fight to take control of her future.
