Dutch-Moroccan kickboxer Amira Tahri is only ten years old, but she has already clinched four world titles. To the sound of pumping beats, we witness the successes and dilemmas of a top talent and her family.
As one of the most promising kickboxing talents in the world, young Amira does not lead an ordinary life. She wants nothing more than to kickbox, just like her father and coach Younes used to do. She turns out to be very gifted, also in taking hard blows. Amira demonstrates how a ten-year old can keep her footing among the absolute global elite, and what it takes to reach this level. With a Dutch and a Moroccan flag draped around her shoulders
