When Bo's parents separate, she moves to a suburb and is invited to join a kickboxing club where she discovers she has a considerable talent...
When her parents go through an acrimonious divorce, the headstrong and highly volatile Bo (12) moves to an Amsterdam suburb with her mother and brother. Once there, her neighbour Joy introduces her to the kickboxing club. Bo demonstrates natural talent and is very soon taking part in the Dutch championships. However, her parents' divorce is so distracting that Bo threatens to ruin the contest. She has to learn restraint and to accept that she can't control everything.
