A bit about the movie:
This is a story of Kaya,12 year old girl, half Israeli and half Nepali who was taken for a round the world trip with her family and ended up living in Goa, India for 7 years.
As Kaya was home schooled she took up boxing in a small boxing club in the Goan village of Chapora. The “Tiger” boxing club was founded and run by an Italian coach and ex boxer name Fabrizio Petroni who’s become a mentor to the teen agers of the area, western as well as Indian
At the club kaya meets Soniya, a local girl who is 5 years her senior and a head shorter. Being the only girl boxers that practice on a daily basis, they become friends and rivals and their relationship with each other and their coach is prominent during Kaya’s coming of age, and until they each go their separate ways.
The film then intertwines between the the years they lived in Goa and between the present visit to India, and these two time layers unfold their relationship, and the consequences of Tal’s life choices and their effect on Kaya’s life.
