Driven by her conservative, uneducated parents to succeed where they had not, a Turkish immigrant living in Copenhagen does her best to meet mom and dad's high expectations while simultaneously staying true to her passion for kung-fu in this action film featuring choreography by Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon's Xian Gao. Aicha (Semra Turan) is a high school student who finds her time constantly split between her studies and her devotion to the martial arts. Though Aicha's father has forbidden her from joining the elite kung fu club presided over by a stern sifu, the young girl secretly attends meeting and begins refining her fighting skills. At first questioning of the sifu's practice of having males and females fight one another, Aicha grows more comfortable with the idea after she begins training with advanced student Emil (Cyron Melville) and a relationship starts to develop between the sparring partners. Back on the family front, Aicha's older brother Ali (Nima Nabipour) and his fiancée Jasmin (Ozlem Saglanmak) begin to worry that Aicha's immodest behavior may somehow jeopardize their upcoming wedding, just as family friend Omar (Behruz Banissi) joins up with the kung fu club. At first it seems that Omar's presence may prove a disaster for all involved, but if Aicha can learn to take responsibility for her own actions perhaps her parents will finally come to respect her for who she is, rather than what they want her to be.
