Fighter is a 2007 film written and directed by Natasha Arthy.

Although her strict father (Sadi Tekelioglu) expects her to study medicine, Aicha (Semra Turan) won't be deterred from training to be-come a skilled kung fu fighter. But in the process of building up her strength with a professional club, she unexpectedly falls for an adversary. At first, Aicha's passionate rela-tionship with Emil (Cyron Melville) is like fire -- but in the end, her Turkish roots could tear them apart.
