Through wrestling with what we fear the most, we find our inner strength and our own beauty.

After tragedy strikes someone close to her, Gita leaves her hometown in China for Malaysia to search of herself. Haunted by the past, she finds solace in the embrace of a sisterhood who teach her how to fight. Gita’s screaming rage and unbearable pain are transformed into physical and spiritual power through the bonds of friendship and the ferocity of combat.

Exploring many meanings of “self-defence” for a modern-day woman grappling with external struggles, this is the 27th film commissioned by the Miu Miu Women’s Tales Project, an acclaimed short film series inviting female directors to investigate vanity and femininity in the 21st century.
