Short synopsis:

As her parents are going through an acrimonious divorce, headstrong and highly volatile twelve-year-old Bo moves to an Amsterdam suburb with her mother and brother. Once there, her neighbour, Joy, introduces her to the local kickboxing club. She demonstrates natural talent and is very soon selected to take part in the Dutch championships, but her parents’ divorce is distracting Bo and threatens to ruin the chances in the contest. Bo has to learn restraint and accept that she can’t control everything.
