sexual assault, sexism, police harrassment

Baghdad er 17 år gammel og bor i et arbejderklassekvarter i byen São Paulo i et hus fyldt med viljestærke, frigjorte kvinder, og tilbringer al sin tid i skateparken. Da hun møder en gruppe kvindelige skateboardere, tager hendes liv en pludselig drejning. Filmen er bygget op omkring karakterernes liv og viser, hvor fantastiske disse kvinder er. Instruktøren styrer ikke uden om mørkere emner som vold, sexisme og diskrimination – alt i mens hun samtidig fejrer solidaritet, familie og oprør.
