Kathereh Jalilzadeh was the first Ninja woman in Iran. She coaches a new generation of young women. The Ninjas do this sport in the forest, jumping behind trees with choreographic movements revealing the beauty as well as the discipline of this martial art. While some sportive women get their family support, others must struggle to overcome the prejudices of a patriarchal society. This martial art becomes a metaphor for the fight of these women who mobilize their spirit to enjoy the freedom it procures. 
This is the debut feature film of Marjan Riahi who was a member of the NETPAC jury at FICA in 2010.
