Cuba is one of the most successful countries in Olympic boxing history, but women are banned from competing. Maceo Frost's atmospheric and immersive film follows the fortunes of 39-year-old potential champion Namibia as she trains alongside male athletes at Havana's legendary El Trejo gym, while hoping for the government to change its stance before she ages out of eligibility.
