An intimate portrait of five dynamic Palestinian women who defy obstacles to do what they love; race cars in a mans world. Bold, fearless and charismatic, they are part of a scene that draws thousands of avid fans to venues ranging from vegetable markets to helicopter pads. Despite politics and family dynamics—not to mention the omnipresent military occupation—these women shatter stereotypes and offer a source of inspiration for girls and women around the world. As one of them says; “what are we supposed to do, stop living?”
