Killa tells the story of a Kichwa photojournalist who becomes a target of corrupt government officials when they find him snapping photos of a shady mining operation.

Beyond the punches, boxing paints a complex portrait of life itself – its obstacles, the discipline, the commitment. With the stories of a child aspiring boxer, and a young amateur boxer, the film weaves a tale about the triumph of human spirit both in ring and in life.
