SEVEN WOMEN. ONE TEAM.
An all-female amateur boxing team are putting in their mouth guards
and changing the face of boxing. As they train to compete in the world's
largest international boxing tournament, they find friendship and teamwork,
but also have
to face issues of violence, fear, and competition.
At a time when women are told not to fight, these boxers step into the
ring ready to face more than just some crosses and uppercuts -- they
must also confront questions of inner strength, personal drive, and
Training six days a week is a team that includes a schoolteacher, a
social worker, and a special education assistant, all focused on going
to a tournament where women are scarce, and the chance of success
isn't a given. One boxer's family emergency, and another boxer's
recognition of the sport's physical dangers, threaten to break the team's
cohesion, and force them to take a deeper look at pain, power, and risk.
BOXERS is the test of seven women forging their own story about the
love of boxing, one round at a time.
