"Down, But Not Out!" captures all the action of four amateur women boxers as they step for the first time into the ring. Each fighter, Anna, Daria, Aga and Alicja go all out to win as they are challenged to face an unknown opponent at a box competition organized by the amateur boxing association within their league. We also witness the trainer, Przemek, his mental and emotional connection with each fighter as he pushes the physical strength of Aga, the mental toughness of Alicja, the vulnerability of Daria and the desire of Anna as they each exceed their own personal limits.
