Synopsis

Giulia, a former Mixed Martial Arts champion, has left the world of fights after a tragic accident in the fighting cage. She works in a small family-run zoo with her boyfriend, Alessandro, a frequent visitor to a religious community led by the charismatic Father Agostino. Tormented by the desire to return to the MMA cage, Giulia jeopardises her relationship with Alessandro and the future they were beginning to glimpse together. Giving her strength in the choices she is called upon to make, however, is the relationship she establishes with her new trainer, Serena. A profound bond that will sustain Giulia during a difficult path of liberation from the cage in which she risks being confined.
