Girlfight is a fierce rites of passage story about a quick-tempered young woman, Diana Guzman (Michelle Rodriguez) who lives in the Brooklyn projects with her dismissive father Sandro (Paul Calderon) and younger brother Tiny (Ray Santiago). Diana witnesses generations of families who never move beyond the confines of their small world. She has nothing to lose - or gain - by not controlling her violent temper.
