Prize-winning film which tells the story of Yuma, a rebellious young woman from a poor neighbourhood in Managua who dreams of becoming a boxer. Is this a Nicaraguan ‘Romeo and Juliet?’ A story of women’s empowerment in post-revolutionary Nicaragua? A complex metaphor for the ‘democratic choice’ of 1990? All this and possibly more.
Unusual story lines, wide range of characters, some humour & good music.
