Jyllands eneste og sejeste kvindelige pro-wrestler kan smadre enhver, men vil det også lykkes Elena at finde sin indre ild?

Et godt bud på et ægte, drøn-underholdende kulthit, der balancerer mellem kulørte fantasi-universer, special effects og ægte følelser. Præcis som den wrestling-kultur, den fører os midt ind i. Her møder vi Elena Morgenstjerne, Jyllands eneste kvindelige pro i arenaen. Alle hendes venner er mænd, og hun kan smadre dem alle sammen når det skal være. Men for at blive en sand legende i ringen må man for alvor finde sin indre ild. Vil det lykkes for Elena? Casper Balslevs film er et ko(s)misk og (k)ærligt indblik i en parallel virkelighed af Santo-masker, Speedos og store drømme.

Jutland’s only – and coolest – female pro-wrestler can beat anyone to a pulp. But can Elena also find her inner fire?

A great attempt at a highly entertaining cult hit, which balances between colourful fantasy universes, special effects and real emotions. Just like the wrestling culture it introduces us to. We meet Elena Morgenstjerne, Jutland’s only female pro in the arena. All her friends are men, and she can beat them all to a pulp if need be. But to become a true legend in the ring, one has to find one’s inner fire. Will Elena succeed? Casper Balslev’s film is a co(s)mic and lovingly honest look at a parallel reality of Santo masks, Speedos and big dreams.
