Fresh off its world premiere at SXSW, Luchadoras is an intimate portrait of three courageous female wrestlers (lucahdoras) from Ciudad Juarez who, despite being surrounded by machismo, redefine the image of women in Mexico. Short statured Mini Serinita dreams of becoming a full-time Luchadora and leaving the factory work that disenfranchises so many women for good. From her house, Lady Candy can see the U.S. Border where her daughters were taken but, due to visa regulations, can never cross it. And, Baby Star, a young single mother who was a Lucha Libre Star at an early age, is ready to make her comeback.
