In the corner (W narożniku – 20 min – Poland – in Polish with subtitles in English)
Iza, 20, is a promising boxer. She has put her heart and soul into preparing for an important fight, under the watchful eye of her father, who is also her trainer and with whom she shares a passion for boxing. Just before the match, her father suggests that she fake the outcome of the match, in exchange for which an important promoter will be able to help them take part in a real championship in the future. Iza must choose between her dream and the values which she holds dear.
