Daniela (16) and Ohad (17) are determined to make their dream come true – win the World Kickboxing Youth Championship. Along with the demanding lifestyle required in professional sports, their studies and matriculation that require dedication and time, they also have to face strong opposition and pressure from their traditional Caucasian families, who disagree with their pursuit of a violent and dangerous sport.
Ohad, who fainted and lost consciousness in the arena, causes his mother great anxiety and she and his father pressure him to stop training and competing.
Daniela has to deal with fears expressed by her female relatives that the sport will harm not only her studies and exams but also put her future chances of getting pregnant at risk.
