Seventeen-year old karate champion Rina Takeda is playing the titular character, a young high schooler who trains in karate and has to face a special group of martial arts fighters wih the help of her sensei (master). The film is directed by karate champion turned actor/producer Fuyuhiko Nishi, whose previous work includes the acclaimed karate drama KURA-OBI as well as appearing in the Hollywood B-movie HONOR, alongside Russell Wong, Jason Barry, Roddy Piper, Rorion and Rener Gracie, and Remy Bojansky to name a few. Nishi was also a producer of SHAOLIN GIRL, a Japanese-made spin-off to Stephen Chow’s 2001 smash hit SHAOLIN SOCCER. Nishi is also in charge of the film’s action sequences. HIGH KICK GIRL is scheduled to come out in Japan in the summer of 2009.

Plot synopsis
A high-school girl named KEI (aged 17) joins a karate dojo. Kei is born with extraordinary athletic ability and she quickly outshines the boys. Her status in the dojo rises quickly as her abilities and strength helps her to even defeat men. Despite her accomplishments, the master MATSUMURA does not award her the coveted 'Blackbelt'. It is clear that Kei always plays to win and only cares about kumite (fighting). Matsumura tries to teach Kei that Karate is about more than just fighting and that 'the real strength is in the kata (forms)'. Kei grows impatient. She feels that she possesses the skills and deserves her blackbelt. Kei will do whatever she has to do to get it. Kei's resentment towards Matsumura grows. She decides to join a rival fighting group called KOWASHIYA (Destroyers) at the advice of her boyfriend. Kowashiya will allow her to use her fighting skills and to earn money doing so.

Kowashiya consists of masters of martial arts who simply destroy their targets, both body and soul. The leader of Kowashiya lures fighters who are struggling for money as there is no guarantee of a promised future, fame, money or stability for fighters like them. Kei becomes deeply involved with Kowashiya until one day she discovers the true purpose of the leader of Kowashiya. He is planning an attack on her master Matsumura. Kei is shocked and decides to warn Matsumura. But now, it is too late. The elite fighters of Kowashiya kidnap Kei and are on their way to destroy Matsumura. Matsumura, who never fights in front of Kei, now stands to save Kei. At last, the ultimate fight begins...
