The Australian boxer Diana Prazak is coached by six-time world champion Lucia Rijker for the bout of her life, against Frida Wallberg. Wallberg, top athlete and undefeated in the ring, is a beautiful and popular blonde; Diana is her Australian self, with only passion and five years of training in her pocket. Will Prazak manage to be ready for battle within six weeks? The filmmaker follows her in this intense period, when it becomes clear Prazak not only has a lot of perseverance and talent, but also has to contend with a strong fear of losing.
