In The World Judo Championship Iranian Leila is set to compete against athletes from far more liberal countries. It's an achievement that Leila has made it this far, as it's not common for Iranian women to have a sports career – and even more unusual to succeed. As the championship unfolds, Leila achieves good results on the judo mat. But the competition takes a sudden turn when her coach, Maryam, receives a threatening phone call. Suddenly, they are faced with much greater challenges than a judo match. Now, both gold and life are at stake.
