Director Statement

As a Filipino actress, I’ve been enjoying creating projects for myself since great opportunities are lacking. I struggled with what I wanted to write until I remembered how rarely we see female-led boxing movies. I was very lucky to be able to cast my actual Muay Thai instructor and a fellow student/experienced fighter to play my sparring partner and mother respectively! This film was my attempt at showing that people of color, particularly Asian American women, and especially older women, can be at the forefront of stories we love playing characters we rarely get the chance to play.
