Drama, shot in black and white, in which young kickboxer Majid has trouble keeping to the straight and narrow. He uses his rock-hard fists to make a career in the ring and in organised crime. Golden Calves for Best Director and Best Actor.
In a drab anonymous disadvantaged neighbourhood, the talented young kickboxer Majid owes his lightning career to a pair of rock-hard fists. Both inside the ring, where his coach fanatically prepares him for big bouts, and outside, where the money from organised crime beckons. Unfortunately, Majid is his own biggest enemy; he can’t control his frustrations and fits of anger and regularly blows a fuse. A contemporary drama in timeless black-and-white, raw and shot from up-close.
