Set against a post 9/11 reality of the country, Kids Fight tells the story of two boys struggling to survive in the poorest slums of Pakistan’s second largest city, Lahore. We see how a Mixed Martial Arts revolution by a former US American veteran and MMA fighter might be the very fight for their lives.
