Synopsis

In the tradition of great indie sports movies like the smash hit, "Billy Elliot", "WHITE BLESSING" is the amazing true of a girl who fights against cultural norms to become a champion judo fighter. Both heroes defy rigid gender stereotypes, with the help of supportive adults who encourage their dreams. Just as in a timeless fairy tale, these characters cross from the wrong side of the tracks to succeed against all odds. "White Blessing" is a universally inspiring film based on the real life events of Sumiya Dorjsuren who won the gold medal for judo at the Rio Olympics in 2016. 

Set in exotic Mongolia, the movie gives us an intimate look into the lifestyle of Mongolian people while it also reveals the physical and metal struggles athletes must endure in order to make it to the top.
