Veera, a former Muay Thai champion, is forced to respond to clandestine fighting.
He suggested to Mike, a student he coached, to participate for the first time. Mike

rules in the ring do not apply in a clandestine fight. To survive, Mike must develop
a warrior spirit.

Director Statement

The idea of the Spirit of the warrior came from my desire to work again with
Amine Gabdou Mahamat - who plays Mike in the film. We did together a first
short film with combat scenes, but I wanted to make more constructed project,
more developed and with more characters.
I have given myself the challenge to doing this film played by fighters, athletes,
who are not professional actors. And for me, it's a real challenge to promote them
that would usually be stand-in under the eye of the camera, and to introduce
them to the acting game by this project. This is exactly what the film tells us: the
spirit of the warrior shows how, when someone has difficulties in life, surpasses
oneself, must believe oneself, be able to rebound and improvise in front of the
unknown and adversity, to take upon oneself to survive and overcome obstacles.
When we go beyond that, we are surprised to have succeeded where we did not
know until then have skills and we emerge stronger.
