Swiv's Grandma, Elvira, has been fighting all her life. From her upbringing in a strict religious community, she has fought those who wanted to take away her joy, her independence, and her spirit. Now, even as her health fails, Grandma is fighting for her daughter, partnerless and in the third term of a pregnancy, and for Swiv, a spirited nine-year-old who has been suspended from school. Cramped together in their Toronto home, Grandma and Swiv undertake a new project, setting out to explain their lives in letters they will never send. Fight Night is a love letter to mothers, grandmothers, and all the women who are still fighting for a way to live on their own terms.
