Ajo Kawir is a fighter who fears nothing, not even death. His raging urge to fight is driven by a secret - his impotence. When he crosses paths with a tough female fighter named Iteung, Ajo gets beaten black and blue, but also head over heels - he falls in love. Will Ajo’s path lead him to a happy life with Iteung, and, eventually, his own peace of mind?
