London, 2012: women are finally stepping into the Olympic boxing ring. Chloe is 21 years old, she loves cherry sambuca, Rihanna karaoke, and winding up her dad. She's also a professional boxer with her sights on a spot on the Olympic team. As Chloe prepares for the fight of her life, she's blindsided by two life changing events.

"Every fighter's got a reason they fight. Deep down. Women can't box? You watch."
