Nothing comes easy for Diana Guzman, a troubled girl on the brink of womanhood. Her teachers don't understand her, her father underestimates her and her friends are few. Diana struggles to find respect and dignity every day. Diana is a quick tempered young woman who finds discipline, self-respect and love in the most unlikely place -- a boxing ring.
Director Karyn Kusama and star Michelle Rodriguez made their feature film debuts with this gritty story, and both received Independent Spirit nominations.
