Luchadora follows Luna Magica – a lucha libre star who struggles to keep her status in the all-star professional league, make ends meet as a single mum in Mexico City, and regain custody of her son who was taken by her estranged husband because of her job as a Lucha Libre wrestler.

Luchadora is a short documentary that shines light into the fascinating sub-culture of female lucha libre wrestling in Mexico and explores issues of gender and power through Luna’s “lucha” both in and out of the ring. It is a universal story about following a dream and fighting for what you love.
