After a few months of social adjustment training, North Korean refugee Jina moves to a small studio in Seoul to start her new life. She needs money to bring her father to South Korea but no matter how hard she works, discrimination stops her from saving enough money. One day, her broker gets her a cleaning job at a boxing gym. Seeing young and confident female boxers, Jina feels something burning inside...

A selection for the Generation 14-plus competition at Berlinale, FIGHTER is a beautiful and moving tale of not just running from your problems, but moving towards something bigger. Whether the troubles are with family or country, the only way to start the healing is from the inside.
