Film description

After a few months, Jina has finished an adaptation course for refugees from North Korea and can finally start looking for her own place in the South Korean society. But the new reality is not easy, people are not friendly, and her job does not pay enough – Jina wants to bring her father to the South, too. She finds a part-time job as a cleaner in a gym where rich women are learning to box. She does not expect that sport can become her chance to fulfill her plans and a space to express the emotions she is hiding deep inside.

"Fighter" is not a typical sports film – there is no pompous music or spectacular, last-second wins. It is a powerful, realistic portrait of a woman fighting for her life – literally. The success of the film would not be possible without the touching role of Lim Sung-mi (known to all viewers of "Crash Landing On You"), awarded at the festival in Pusan. Jina is not immune to the hits, but she has enough strength and character to retaliate with even more power.
