Directed by Jessie Auritt • 2016 • United States
When a nine-year-old girl breaks a powerlifting world record, she turns into an international phenomenon and “Supergirl” is born. Naomi Kutin seems like a typical Orthodox Jewish pre-teen, until her extraordinary talent transforms the lives of her family and thrusts her into the spotlight. This inspiring documentary follows Naomi’s unique coming-of-age story as she fights to hold on to her title while navigating the perils of adolescence—from strict religious obligations to cyberbullying, and health issues that could jeopardize her future in powerlifting. Can she still be Supergirl if she can no longer break world records? With a passionate family supporting her each step of the way, Naomi must learn to accept herself and discover that she is as strong inside as she is outside.
