First Match

'My first fight' is a title of tragic irony for a film whose protagonist, Monique (Elvire Emanuelle), has already gone through many battles when we see her for the first time, expelled from her umpteenth foster home for getting involved with the boyfriend of the woman in charge. Orphaned as a mother, Mo enlists in his school's wrestling team (boys only) to follow in the footsteps of a father (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) whom he deeply admires in spite of his mistakes; Right now he's in prison, or so Mo believes.
