Wolf by Jim Taihuttu


In WOLF the worlds of kickboxing and organised crime collide.

Majid (Marwan Kenzari) is a talented kickboxer from a grey, anonymous suburb in the Netherlands. As his fighting prowess brings him increasing notoriety, both in and outside the ring, the lines of demarcation between the worlds of kickboxing and organised crime begin to blur, and Majid begins to lose sight of what it is he really wants…
