Despite boasting more Olympic gold titles for boxing than any other country, Cuba falls behind the rest of the world in its attitude to the place of women in the ring. To this day, there exists a nationwide ban on women's competitive boxing, originating from comments made by the now deceased wife of Raul Castro who expressed that Cuban women should first protect their beauty.

Namibia Flores Rodriguez is driven by her dream to become the first Cuban female Olympic Champion. She has dedicated her life to intense training at the Rafael Trejo Gym in Old-Havana – the iconic arena known for generating boxing medalists. At 39, she is now right on the edge of the age limit. The intimate film follows her last chance.
