"Lucha libre", or "free fight" is not a Mexican variant of North American wrestling, but a mass phenomenon that reflects the mentality of the Latinos in Middle and South America.

Not only is more than half of the public female, but since 1987, more and more female Luchadoras also perform in the arenas. This phenomenon raises many interesting questions in a Catholic "Macho" country like Mexico.

The 35-year-old "Lady Warrior" - who in her daily life is a single mother and fruit peeler on the big market of Mexico City - wants to get into the first league. She is preparing for a fight in which she will defend her Lady Warrior title.
