Told over the course of the ten rounds of his first fight, this is the story of amateur boxer Kush. A young carer feeling isolated and disconnected in the city he's just moved to, Kush joins a boxing club to learn to protect himself after a racist attack. He finds the community h...e's been desperately seeking there, and a mentor in trainer Shona, who helps him find his place in the world. But racial tensions are rising in the city, and Kush is faced with losing his new best friend Kieran to radicalisation.
