Hit me Baby chronicles a week in the life of Hatice, a female boxer, right before she attends the national tryouts. As a lower class woman without a college degree and any qualifications Hatice has only two options: either succeed in sports or get married. However, all her efforts and drive take a big hit after she loses her match-up. Even though Hatice tries to climb up to success, there comes a point where she can no longer resist the people around her who are always trying to bring her down and slowly starts turning into the woman they always expected her to be.
