The Boxing Girils of Kabul
In post-Taliban Afghanistan, three young female boxers dream of representing their country in the 2012 Olympics. Their training ground is the stadium in Kabul where the Taliban once stoned women to death. As they fight for the chance to prove themselves in the ring, the girls duck opposition from family members and face threats to their safety. They finally travel abroad to their first international competition, where they confront not only sure-footed opponents, but their own hopes for a better future.
