Summary

Summary

A look at the Palestinian auto-racing team Speed Sisters -- the first all-female racing squad in the Arab world -- and how they pursue the sport they love despite cultural prejudice, mechanical shortages, and the difficulties of life under Israeli occupation. Interviews, behind-the-scenes footage, and racing clips detail how the drivers rely on their families, fans, and each other for support. Directed by Amber Fares. ~ Violet LeVoit, Rovi
