CAISĂ
CAISĂ is a documentary that follows Dobre, a veteran boxing trainer and his protégé Caisă, a Romani teenager. Dobre is devoted to the kids he trains but he is also haunted by the betrayal of a previous champion whose talents he helped nurture. The film reveals itself as a raw, emotional look into the hardships of two individuals fighting in the boxing ring and their struggles to survive a life of no privilege.
