Turkey, 2012, 89', color, Turkish with English subtitles
 
Evin Demirhan (15) - a petite Kurdish teenager and Turkish champion - wrestles to support her family of 13 in a city where violent conflict rages, leaders protect rapists and family honor keeps females at home. In the world championships, she is one fight away from a future she can call her own. Unknown to officials or the public, one in four female athletes in Turkey choose boxing, wrestling or martial arts. More and more girls from poor, religious families are quietly rejecting oppressive fates by literally fighting for university spots that lead to jobs. This story belongs to one girl driven by these possibilities.
