A documentary about the formerly male-dominated world of wrestling and a courageous young woman who struggles to be taken seriously as an athlete and performer. Yasmin Lander from Norwich has wanted one thing above all else since she was a child: to become a wrestler. She has been training for many years, making her debut in 2011. But the pink-clad upper-class girl she is supposed to embody doesn't suit her. She takes time off and creates a new alter ego: tomboy Charlie Morgan - tough, direct, self-confident. "But what's left of her fame when Charlie reveals what she's really like? Because Yasmin is newly in love.... A coming-of-age film of a special kind." (DokFest Munich)
