Cuba, a nation that boasts more Olympic gold medals for boxing than any other country, has a long-standing ban on females participating in the sport. Stemming from the late wife of Raul Castro, Vilma Espin, the ban has proved to be unsuccessful in preventing women from training. Espin, who feared that Cuban women would risk ruining their beauty by participating in such activities by causing damage to their features, has only inspired generations of female fighters and rule breakers. This documentary follows one such woman, who has dedicated her life to a seemingly unattainable victory. “Enrapturing...nothing short of masterful.” - Film Inquiry
