One woman army

Thulasi is one of India's greatest boxing talents, stubborn, dedicated and extraordinarily disciplined. As a Dalit woman born outside caste, she could hardly have chosen a more challenging and difficult path in life. Her family wants her to get married, but Thulasi is not interested in a life on the very bottom rung of the social ladder. The brave young woman is prepared to fight for her freedom and her future, and against all odds, she takes on the battle, both inside and outside the boxing ring.
