Film synopsis

In 2018, a young Icelandic woman, Karítas Hvönn Baldursdóttir, won the Danish Championship in Muay Thai - also known as Thai boxing. The film follows Karitas through her first three fights: a defeat; a draw; and finally victory in the Danish Championship. Karitas grew up on a small farm on Iceland, and is now studying in Copenhagen. Noi, her coach, grew up in Thailand with Thai boxing a part of everyday life. Karitas dreams about winning. Noi can see her potential and shows her – through merciless training, humility and the disappointment of defeat - the path to victory. The timeline of the film runs from the summer 2017 to early 2018. The film is primarily chronological and built around the three fights.
