In the border city of Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, where violence against women has reached near epidemic proportions, three masked female Mexican wrestlers, or Luchadoras, are training for their next match. Outside the ring, the battles continue, as they confront personal crises, address issues in the community and work to achieve their goals. For Mini Serinita, success could mean an end to factory labor. For Lady Candy, it could help her obtain a visa to the U.S. to find her daughters who were kidnapped by her husband and taken across the border. Baby Star, a single mother who has already tasted success, could make a dramatic comeback. Together, their strength, resilience and effervescent charm cuts deftly through a looming sense of fear.
