Muslim schoolgirl Fareeha dreams of becoming a martial arts champion. Now after qualifying for an Indian national tournament her goal is firmly in sight.
But her mother decides she can’t go. While okay with Fareeha learning combat for self-defence, she’s strongly against her 14-year-old daughter showing off her moves in public.
Witness follows Fareeha as she challenges her family’s traditional values to fight not only for the title, but for her independence.
