    The Film is an intimate portrait of three courageous female wrestlers (Luchadoras) from Ciudad Juarez who despite being surrounded by machismo redefine the image of woman in Mexico. The short statued Mini Serinita who’s biggest dream is to become a full time Luchadora and leave the Factory work that disenfranchises so many women for good. Lady Candy who can see the U.S. Border, where her daughters were taken. And Baby Star, the young single mother who was a Lucha Libre Star at an early age and now makes her way to a come back. With Mexican passion they present a new image of what it means to be a woman in Mexico.
