Majid (Marwan KENZARI) is a talented kickboxer from a grey, anonymous suburb in The Netherlands. As his fighting prowess brings him increasing notoriety in-and outside the ring, the worlds of kickboxing and organized crime begin to blur into each another and Majid begins to lose sight of what it is he really wants.

“It’s refreshing that director Jim Taihuttu is more interested in the humdrum goings on of those who split their time between illegal and legitimate activities.” – Michael Nordine, Village Voice
