In a drab, anonymous deprived urban district, the young kickboxer Majid makes a career for himself fast, owing to his rock-hard fists. Both inside the ring, where his coach fanatically preps him for big bouts, and outside, where the money from organised crime beckons. Unfortunately, Majid is his own biggest opponent; he can’t control his frustrations and temper and regularly beats his head against the wall - or someone else’s. Contemporary drama in timeless black-and-white, in a raw visual style.
