When the media gets wind of Mary Thorn’s story, there’s no stopping them from villainizing her as just another “Florida Man.” Florida Woman is a documentary portrait that peels back the curtain on the media’s portrayal of Mary Thorn, an ex-pro wrestler in Florida battling the state in order to save her pet alligator. Florida Woman ultimately reveals the humanity behind the viral headlines.
