"A remarkable group of young Afghan women hone their boxing skills without the benefit of even the most basic facilities, in the country's national stadium - where only recently women were executed by the Taliban. They are loyal to their nation, yet dare to defy its traditions. Inspired by their tenacious coach, these courageous boxers risk persecution and openly dream of their future, even a shot at the 2012 Olympics. This compelling film intimately shadows their journey, one of both personal and political transformation."--Container.
