A 13-year-old girl and her grandfather, a former boxer, embark on a martial arts journey as she competes in full contact combat sports while growing up without her parents.
We have followed Amenzee since her beginnings in martial arts in late 2013. She had her first fight that year. We have filmed various fights in North America as well as conducted intimate interviews with her close family. Rick, her grandfather, is a strong character and an important person in her life.
We have a rough cut of all footage and are currently putting an assembly together. After a hiatus we now need to film her return to the gym – it is the final piece for post-production.
Length: feature documentary.
