Buffalo Girls tells the story of two 8-year-old-girls, Stam and Pet, both professional Muay Thai prizefighters. Set in small villages throughout rural Thailand, the film chronicles these young girls’ emotional and sometimes heartbreaking journey as they fight in small underground arenas to win prize-money to help provide for their families. After many months of rigorous training and a long schedule of fights, Stam and Pet fight each other for the 20 Kilo championship belt of Thailand and a cash prize that will change the winner’s life forever.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: A story that, though sickly fascinating, is as crudely rendered as its images.
Rotten: Tthe burning question of child safety and long-term physical effects of fists-and-feet Muay Thai boxing is all but absent.
Rotten: It's difficult to say if Kellstein's approach to these difficult cultural dilemmas is meant to leave the audience to decide for themselves or if he can't figure it out either.
Rotten: Buffalo Girls hews close to the experience at hand, which sometimes feels a little too much like a normal leading-up-to-the-big-game Undefeated-style sports doc.
