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.

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.
