Description

Experience a rhythmic journey with a pulsating score in colorful Cuba. In a land where many struggle with limited opportunities and broken dreams, there stands Namibia, a woman who won’t take no for an answer. Despite a ban on female boxing in her country, she yearns to represent Cuba in the Olympics. With a brutal and rigid regime, she trains as if the ban will be lifted at any moment — as if she can bring her dream into reality by sheer willpower. Tenacity has a new name; it is Namibia.
