Summary Although they are told that wrestling is for boys, preteen girls Noelia and Wara put on traditional costumes of the Aymara women of Bolivia and head to the fighting ring as Cholitas (or luchadoras). During the week they train physically and develop their fighting styles, and although they realize they can't wrestle forever, they both will use the lessons they've learned in the ring to follow their other dreams.
