This documentary tells the rather fantastic story of how Sadaf Rahimi from Afghanistan became the country’s best female boxer. Sadaf’s idol is boxer Laila Ali, daughter of Muhammad Ali, and her aim is to just as good. It can feel like a long journey when Sadaf’s reality is that Afghani girls have to fight for equality and their right to freedom of choice.
