Imagine a world where women are beautiful badass beings who know how to fight and win. They arm wrestle for money. And they love it! This is not a world familiar to our hero Melanie. When we open the film, Melanie is living in a small town in Kansas working as a baker. She’s just gotten out of a horrible marriage. Straddled with debt and self doubt, her confidence is in the dumpster, right next to yesterday’s scones. When she’s forced to close her bakery, she seeks help from her best friend and local arm wrestling champ Danny.
After Melanie wins an impromptu arm wrestling match at a local truck stop, Danny convinces her to train for the Ladies Arm Wrestling Championship and its prize of $15,000. Reluctant, Melanie meets up with Big Sexy, the legendary ladies arm wrestling coach. After getting “broken” of her nice girl ways, Melanie heads to Oklahoma to compete in the tournament and face off with Brenda “the Bonecrusher" Smith, the reigning champ and Danny’s arch nemesis.
Can Melanie toughen up enough to climb the leaderboard and beat Brenda? Maybe… with a little help from her new arm wrestling friends, a hot guy named Greg and a smidge of belief in her own potential… it just might be possible to achieve a success she never dared to dream and beat down the competition in the process.
