The Mexican city of Ciudad Juarez claims thousands of victims every year as drug cartels clash with government forces in the so called 'War on Drugs". The city is the epicentre of a wave of crimes against women in which the culprits hardly ever get caught. This inspirational film is an intimate portrait of three courageous female wrestlers (Luchadoras) from Juarez who despite being surrounded by machismo and in constant danger both, in the ring, and also in their daily life's fight to redefine the image of what it means to be a woman in Mexico.

This film contains scenes of physical abuse.
