Esma is a 14-year-old kickboxing-talent. She has big dreams of becoming the world’s greatest fighter. Esma also carries the constant fear of losing her ill mother, who is frequently visiting the hospital. Esma seeks solace in kickboxing, but what do you fight for when your future looks both grim and bright?

Champ is a compassionate film depicting a young life in the midst of explosive feelings and an unclear path. The film shows the value of support when facing challenges in life, and encourages us to face our personal weak spots.
