Destined for glory, the charismatic Gina "Boom Boom" Guidi proves she is a warrior in her own right. This fascinating and candid portrait takes us through Gina's rise to the top ranks of women's professional boxing. Raised by a single mother in tough Bay Area neighborhoods, Guidi struggled in adolescence with poverty, substance abuse and domestic violence. It was in the cramped gyms and battered boxing rings of San Francisco and Oakland that Gina found her true calling
This Film captures Guidi's immense strength and determination as she challenges prevailing stereotypes of women. "Foxy boxing" and "mudwrestling" this isn't. It's a world where physical and mental endurance are the key ingredients for success in the ring.
