Australian Flyweight champion, Bianca 'Bam Bam' Elmir aims to be the first Australian to win a World Amateur Boxing Championship. A Lebanese Muslim from suburban Australia, she smashes the stereotypes of her family, society and her sport, to prove she is the best in the world.  
“Smashing stereotypes” - Carolyn Webb, The Age “…an absorbing story of an athlete dedicated to their sport, a portrait of an individual fighting for, and fighting against herself.” - Anthony Frajman, FilmInk “An empowering film… an authentic following of an athlete trying to be her damned best.” - The Docs Factor Podcast “…an impressively deep exploration of one woman’s complex identity.” - Jake Watt, SWITCH
